Tux is supposed to be a penguin that has recently eaten his fill of fish and is now feeling happily bloated - so yes, he is tubby, and he is meant to be. He also looks nothing like real penguins, but who cares? He's a cool icon for Linux users. (And by icon, I don't mean a small 48x48 picture).

Ah, leave tux alone. So what if he is a little husky? Doesn't make him ugly. He's a cute little critter (oh what I wouldn't do for a Tux doll to put on top of my moniter), and his belly is what make him cute.

I believe he's like the man-eating rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Looks all cute and cuddly - but get too close and he'll peck you to death with giant man-eating penguine teeth.

OH THE HORROR!!!!!

I FART IN YOUR GENERAL DIRECTION.

I tend to not critisize unless I have done better...

Assuming you take the same stance, could you post a picture of your creation?



Cool
