    WOW

    Those are some NICE cd covers

    ( now I kinda feel bad, my first Knoppix just had Knoppix 3.2 scribbled on the cd itself. ( in fact, the same is true for my copies of 3.3 and 3.4, replacing the respective version numbers ) )

    Some tiny details, reading the text on the covers: I think the knx-hdinstall is not available in v3.4, but don't quote me, or change the cover on my "weak" knowledge of this fact...

    Also, what FONT was used for the KNOPPIX LIVE DISTRO - that is a really cool looking font...

    NOW... If someone can make TUX into a "flying window" kind of LOGO, and start posting it on anything that runs on Linux, I think it might get to be a "marketable" competition [giggle]

    If you read on the Knoppix v3.4 CD Cover, under the area topic'ed To Install Knoppix to your Hard-Drive - it reads that you enter knx-hdinstall within a root Konsole -=- I don't think, or I have been led to believe, that knx-hdinstall is no longer available on v3.4, it has been replaced with knoppix-installer - I think. ( again, don't quote me on this change, I am not possitive about it )

    My mistake, sorry...

    To explain...

    Everything that runs in "Windows" has that logo, it looks like a rectangle "window", with four color panes, and then a swoosh of colors after it, it looks like it is "flying" through the air.

    The "logo" in Windows "circles" has come to be called the "Flying Windows" logo. What I was suggesting is that "Linux" plays off of the "Windows" logo, by replacing the "window" with a picture of TUX, the "Linux" penguin, and then add the "swoosh" of colors after it... Thus making a colorful, pun, or joke, of the Windows Logo with a penguin, for Linux...

    It was a joke, but everyone knows the Windows Logo, so that this way, Linux might be taken seriously in the "Windows" World.

    Im so gonna get flamed for saying this.
    BUT ITS THE PENGUINS FAULT.

    Thats where its all at.
    If there was no penguin I think the wohle linux thing might get a but more respect..
    NO OFFENCE PLEASE DO KICH THE SH!T OUT OF ME....

    Plus there are so many version of *nix out there that cannot be one main logo.
    Take redhat and debian, they have great logos.
    Im gonna try and make one I think with a PROPPER SYMBOL.

    Like the KDE logo,

    Awwwwwww, the poor penguin

    Sorry Ronin, no flame, I wouldn't do that, but, ever since I got into Linux, through the use of Knoppix, I have come to admire the penguin...

    I've got tons of penguin stuff now, stuffies, keychains, wall paper, cursors, even AMOR with the penguins running around my desktop.

    IMHO, I thought TUX was a better logo, even a mascott, than you could have with Windows - a stalle inanimate window, as a logo, yuck... at least a penguin has character, an attituide, something that could be animated.

    But, to play both sides, I agree with you though, way too many logo's... KDE is nice, Debian is interesting, haven't seen any other ones though, I don't go around looking at much logo's. But, I always thought of the "penguin" as a mascott, something that every "Linux" user could affiliate with. You know, the same as the "fish symbols" that used to signify someone who follows Jesus, kinda thing. You could have a TUX bumper-sticker, and someone could easily see, you were a Linux person. I know if someone ever saw my car, they would either think I've gone nuts for penguins, or that, if they knew Linux, I might be a person who runs or uses Linux. ( my bet would be they would think I was a nutty woman )

    To be completely honest though, you also "promoted" another logo, even in your CD Covers... The whole eye image, from what I have come to know, has become synonomous with Knoppix, maybe even to the point of it being called a "Logo" for it. But, none of this was intended to be a flame, more along the lines of a friendly discussion on the subject

    Live long, and prosper,
    Ms. Cuddles
