Greatest Mascot/Logo

Good grief...

How could you even CONSIDER Tux not being the best mascot ever? Sheesh.

re: good grief

Which tux?

Some are cute, some are artistic, most are so ugly even a mother penguin wouldn't love them.

re: Good grief...

well, yes, of course. But he's the generic Linux mascot and I suppose I was trying to poll on the distribution specifics. I thought of including Tux, but decided against it.

When all those stars and

When all those stars and curlies and gs and lizards and whatsoever die out, you'll all be glad to know it's just the circle of life. bummer Smile

Actually, even though I use Ubuntu and voted for Debian, I like the Scientific Linux logo - it looks like ReactOS.

Mascot/logo

I like the Foresight Linux 'Eagle Eye F'. The Fedora and Chameleon are probably next in line.

re: Mascot

It's not a lizard, it's a chameleon...

My vote goes to the old FreeBSD devil with sneakers

Yeah, he's cute. I almost put that one in the poll, but he's been replaced. The new one is more modern/trendy looking, but doesn't have the same appeal.

re: Mascot

I found this on Wikipedia:

"Initially, FreeBSD employed the BSD Daemon as its logo, but in 2005 a competition for a new logo was arranged. On October 8, 2005, the competition finished and the design by Anton K. Gural was chosen as the new FreeBSD logo[4]. The BSD Daemon will remain as the FreeBSD Project mascot."

So the cute devil has not retired yet... fortunately, because I *hate* the new logo!

re: Mascot

I'm from TN, they're all lizards to me. Big Grin

EDIT: Wikipedia: Chameleons (family Chamaeleonidae) are squamates that belong to one of the best-known lizard families.

re: Mascot

Well, chameleons are indeed a family of animals belonging to the suborder of lizards. Like a human is a primate. One is a collection where the other belongs to. In short: a chameleon is a lizard, but a lizard is not necessarily a chameleon.
By the way: a gecko (the Firefox engine) is a lizard too!

i voted for ubuntu, and i don't even use it

i'm surprised that suse's lizard is at the top, don't get me wrong, it's my distro, but i always thought the lizard is a bit retarded

re: Mascot

That's funny, I voted for the Lizard and I don't like/use SUSE.

re: Mascot

Same here.. I've always liked SUSEs reptile. Red Hats logo came in a close second though.

SUSE

I like this suse's little crocodile!

re: SUSE

crocodile? lol

Open Source “PiTalk” Turns Your Raspberry Pi Minicomputer Into A Modular Smartphone

More than a year ago, I wrote about a Raspberry Pi-powered phone called PiPhone, and the readers loved it. Just recently, I came across another similar project on Kickstarter and decided to share it on Fossbytes. Named PiTalk, the project calls itself the “first ever DIY modular smartphone.” Powered by Python, PiTalk modular smartphone is compatible with Raspberry Pi Zero, Pi 2, and Pi 3. For voice and data communication, it has a 3G module. The basic features performed by PiTalk are: Read more

IoT-oriented Linux ready SBC has an optional enclosure

Technologic’s TS-7553-V2 SBC runs Linux on an i.MX6UL and offers Ethernet, USB, GPIO, and serial I/O, plus WiFi/BT, XBee, cellular, and many other options. Technologic’s new “TS-7553-V2” single-board computer is a gen-2 re-spin of its 250MHz Cavium ARM9 SoC-based TS-7553 SBC. The new board upgrades the processor to the 698MHz-clocked NXP i.MX6UL, and then for good measure increases RAM to 256MB (up from 64MB) and flash storage to as much as 64GB (up from 256MB), while expanding the board’s fanless operating temperature range to -40 to 85°C (from 0 to 70°C). It also adds several built-in interfaces, such as for connection of text LCDs and matrix keyboards, and supports more modular expansion options than its predecessor. Read more
