    Actually, this was considered. However, in those dark days, the ISO
    had not yet standardized the international symbol for the fucking
    retard. A symbol for "dimwit crossing" was in wide-spread use, and it
    had been incorporated into an ANSI draft standard, but there were
    certain legal issues---Microsoft claimed it infringed on their "flying
    windows" trademark.

    Instead, the penguin, the stupidest and nastiest of all flightless
    birds (ostrich? BZZZT-thanks-for-playing!) was felt to best symbolize
    the glorious mosaic that is the Linux development community.

    But, thanks for your input!
