I dunno what we should use this for or if it should be remixed. But I found this and I think it'd be good for us. from left: BSD Daemon Beastie, Java's Duke, OpenBSD's Puffy, Darwin's Hexley, Linux's Tux, GNU's Gnu

Does anyone know what the second one from the left is?

Question is: what should we use it for?

For ease of reference, the depicted mascots are: Beastie (BSD), Duke (Java), Hexley (Darwin), Puffy (OpenBSD), Tux (Linux), and a gnu (GNU)

    The guy second from the left is the Java mascot apparently. Commented Sep 9, 2010 at 1:56

  • @Michael could probably get someone to remove Duke, if no one volunteers and we have an idea what we'd use it for... I'm sure I can get a friend to do it. Commented Sep 9, 2010 at 5:14

    Here's an edited version. I moved Puffy left, but we could also move Beastie right to fill the space Commented Sep 10, 2010 at 0:33
  • @Michael that's great... now if only we could come up with something to use it for Commented Sep 10, 2010 at 3:03
  • @xeno I think this could be turned into a decent 404 image Commented Sep 10, 2010 at 5:43
  • @Michael maybe you should submit it to that ;) Commented Sep 12, 2010 at 12:31

If someone wanted to create a similar graphic here are some sources for the images

Another similar sort of character:

  • Isn't the daemon the mascot for all three BSDs? Then Puffy wold be superfluous I think. I mean, otherwise we had to include Fedora hat, Ubuntu logo, Suse gecko and Debian shell too. (And still Gentoo and Linux mint and Mandrake would protest...)

    I think the focus was to involve the "characters" associated with Unix and Linux in the design of this site, rather than to be perfectly representative.

  • Thanks moberlerly, great resource. +1 ( That lizzard does not look like a samurai at all, more like a mongrol )

  • Hmm. What kind of CDs can the Golden GNU, in good conscience, listen to?
