It looks stupid. It's goofy. The shadows on his belly were obviously made by a guy who never colorized anything in his life before. From what we hear, it's bad design "on purpose", it's a show of irreverence. Just like not washing oneself is social irreverence. It's public autism.
What's the point of even making a mascot if it's done by people who don't understand what are the purpose of mascots. Why are those ugly, stupid FOSS mascots even a thing?
Where will the worldview of people who believe in ironic ugliness lead us?


I've never been a fan of any of the animals that the Free and Open projects have. Only BSD Beastie I find it decent and meme material.


An abstract logo should be enough for an abstract software. Kinda like how Mint did it.
This is what a real reusable, easy-to-mod setpiece should be. Tux is cultural bloat.


Well your not wrong, a penguin as the mascot isn't the problem just the particular design.

Who can say the amount of potential gnu/linux users have been lost because of soykafty branding ….


meh, the linux logo also is jus plain old. Thats not a problem, but if we look at like, the logos macos or windows were using back then they look off too. They changed with the times though, linux, at least the kernel, didnt really.


The linux kernel changed a lot, and it's changing right now. Did you ever visit LKML?

Also, this thread really needs an interjection.


oh it seems you misunderstood me; the kernel is changing, the logo of the kernel isnt.

`at least the kernel, didnt really' was meant to differentiate kernel vs distros and other stuff (redhat for example cares about and does an ok job with marketing itself).


>woman angry that the linux penguin is cuter than her
>wants it derezzed.

We have the technology to rebuild this mascot.

You joke, but both the type of woman you're mocking and the type of man who makes the sort of post you did unironically both exist and it genuinely keeps me up at night


And there's nothing you can do about it.
