if you had your own os what would its logo be?


just wundering a rather stupid thing but if you had your own OS what would you have as its logo?

Linux has the penguin, BSD has the devil, M$ has a butterfly, apple has an apple

if you had a OS what would it be? would it be an animal of some kind or something els?

i know its weird but i think mine would be an Ostrich! either that or the Airlie Bird (my rugby teams mascot!!!!)

what would yours be and why?

I've got my own OS, and this is its logo:

It just wasn't made by me, but I call it "my" OS :-)

My favorite logo is the Guinness toucan. Too bad it's already taken. Darn! -- J.W.

M$ has a butterfly
Technically, M$ has the multiple bended windows. The butterfly is MSN's. But they are both M$, so I see ur point. Anywho, mine would be some exotic bird, like maybe a parrot.

Okay first of all, you guys don't have to worry about Mandrake[OS] anymore, he's no longer allowed to use this site due to graphic, unappropiate behavior along with showing disrespect for our members and moderators, violating our rules after being warned way too many times.

Secondly ksgill, with sexual type remarks like you started in your choice of a logo, your heading in the same direction.

Review our rules you all agreed to when registering which the very first one states this and was broken:

Do not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.
