Uh, before everyone goes too far with the penguin idea, I should point
out that a penguin is the "advertising mascot" of NuMega Technologies,
Inc, which makes protected mode debuggers (Soft-ICE), and code
scanners (Bounds-Checker) for Windows, and Windows95. Even if they
have no legal control of the image of a penguin, we may wish to
distance ourselves, market identification-wise, from any Windows
product. They might mistake Linux for a NuMega product.
