Is Tux Still the Right Mascot for Linux?
Now that Linux has reached the ripe old age of 20, it seems fair to say the software is officially "mature." Were it a human, after all, it would likely be allowed to drive by now, and maybe even to drink, too.
Just as we humans tend to engage in a little self-analysis and image-updating when we reach major milestones like these -- updating ourselves to reflect who we have become, as it were -- so, too, it may be time for Linux to do the same.
Such, indeed, was essentially the point behind a recent open poll at Tux Radar. Specifically, "Does Tux help or hinder Linux?" was the question at hand.
