A hoarde of GNU-riding penguins and daemons beseiging Microsoft Keep
perhaps?

I still say that while all these ideas are good, we should first start
by pushing the penguin as a logo for Linux.

As of right now, the penguin is only associated with Linux by the
readers of this list. If we seriously want to use the penguin as a
logo, then we should start by publicizing that association. Penguins
on the warpath against Microsoft makes sense only if you know that the
penguins represent Linux, and not Soft-ICE or even Bud Ice (both of
which reputedly ise penguins heavily as a symbol)

Perhaps a pitch could be made to have the Linux Journal feature a
Penguin waving a Linux 2.0 banner on the cover of the first issue after
the official release? A penguin on the www.linux.org homepage? An
interesting "birds of a feather" gathering at Usenix (tuxedo and tails,
maybe? Maybe not)?
