Tux-The Linux Penguin
 
Well, I have a simple question. Who ever came up with the idea for Tux being the masscot for Linux? I mean, I never heard of anyone saying: "Lets use a penquin named Tux for our masscot". Do you? Well, just who came up with the idea?

Also, I think it would be cool to see all the different pictures on Tux on the internet, so, include one picture that has Tux in it that is "cool" or "funny", but don't make it "sick" Cool?

Here is mine: http://www.oook.cz/screenshots/daemon-vs-tux-1600.jpg <Poor Tux!

Step 1: http://www.google.com
Step 2: origin of tux
Step 3: second link: http://www.gwaihir.org/etc/tux.html

Edit: The picture is rather funny btw :D Though, I don't like to see Tux getting beaten up :)

I know I coulda used Google, but I thoguht I would get others to post how they thought it happened.


I know the picture was funny, and I feel bad for tux. He would rule over the Daemons, they stand no chance. I can see the daemon chained up, and tux saying "Which is better, Linux of FreeBSD, the daemon would say FreeBSD, and Tux would penquin slap him!" That would be cool. Why don't you post a picture?

Damn, the Unix wars are not over ...they just changed names.
