Lithographically, the scanned Lasseter drawing is not line art and however drawn neither scaled easily in a wide range of sizes nor rendered appealingly in only two or three colours.

FreeBSD6 Unleashed by Brian Tiemann

Starting ffeebsd FreeBSD 2. A contest to create a new FreeBSD logo began in February and a scalable graphic which somewhat echoes the BSD Daemon’s head was chosen the following October, although “the little red fellow” has been kept on as an official project mascot.

Whatever story behind it, I just think there are many other alternatives they could use as the logo. This forum is a community. Usenix purchased the reproduction rights to Foglio’s artwork in The Walnut Creek 2. As someone rather appreciative of the work of Isaac Newton, Blaise Pascal, Gregor Mendel, a variety of ancient Muslim scholars, and many more, I’m glad they didn’t stick to reading fiction.


Announcement of New Logo”. As in a long-running background process. The OP just implied that the small devil image of FreeBSD represents evil in the entire history of humanity which is false. History is long and the world is more diverse than you seem to realize.

His original drawing was then apparently lost, shortly after having been sent to Digital Equipment Corporation for use in an advertisement; all known copies are from photographs of surviving T-shirts.

Berkeley Software Distribution Fictional demons and devils Computing mascots. So, I’ve treebsd due diligence seriously since then. Beastie customarily carries a trident to symbolize a software daemon’s forking of processes.

I have agreed to allow the small image to appear on Wikipedia but not the larger ones. Anyone who takes the devil seriously should stick to reading Harry Potter.

Oh, and quite a lot of math and science dates back to Christian and Muslim scholars, so your last sentence is perhaps dismissive of the general intellect of religious folk. If you insist on a name, call him Beastie. This page was last edited on 12 Mayat Anonymity is fine, but users should have some consistent identity that other users can relate to.


Reproduction of the daemon in quantity, such as on T-shirts and CDROMs, requires advance permission from McKusick, who restricts its use to implementations having to do with BSD and not as a company logo although companies with BSD-based products such as Scotgold and Wind River Systems have gotten this kind of permission.

Both Christians and Muslims have been a huge source of actual vs. Even if one doesn’t believe in the Devil, surely it seems in poor taste to use as a mascot a mythological creature who is reputed to be the source of every single evil, cruel, horrible thing in all of history.
