Why a gecko?
 
OK, this is kinda a dumb question, and it really doesn't have a lot to do with any technical issues, but I gotta know:

How did a gecko (or salamander or whatever the hell that is) come to be the mascot for Suse?

And I think that I have probably the coolest home Suse mascot. This guy usually sits under my LCD, he cam out to pose for his picture:

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

And to answer why: why the heck not?

{edit} and to add to this thread and pose a question to you: why didn't you scroll down and read the other thread on this very topic? ;){/edit}

OK, a chameleon. Sure, why not. But is that the reason? Why not? I know how Linus Torvalds hit upon the penguin, but how did the Suse forefathers hit upon a chameleon? And where is the thread on this that I missed? I guess I off to google chameleons! ;)

It started out more like a toad but is now recognised as a Chameleon.

Since there is already a very active discussion about this (thanks for the link archtoad6), I am closing this thread.
