How about we use the Killer Penguin -alone- as a mascot or logo for
Linux 2.0, and then we can use it in creative ways like above. But all
of these ideas, while fun, are a bit complicated for a logo.

Besides, do we want our -logo-, our -personal- symbol, our -identity-
dependant on that of Windows or BSD?

Personally, I'd like to see Castle Microsoft surrounded by a field of
little Killer Penguins and BSD Daemons. If need be, I can even
rationalise it. But not as a logo.

(Just don't have the penguin humming "Strangers in the Night")
