I'm not blaming the Linux people for the inappropriate use of the Linux mascot by the Linux community. However it is folly to not consider the overuse of Tux when considering further mascots. "Those who do not learn from history...." The Pandora is a Linux-based machine and in a way already falls under the 'brand Identity' of Tux the Penguin already. If you look at various Linux distros, none of them have had their logo/mascots take on the life that Tux has, even SUSE's chameleon hasn't become the loveable plush icon that Tux has.Dauric:
You cannot blame Linux for people using the Tux logo stupidly.
The official "Linux" logo is really, really boring, without Tux Linux would have no visual recognizably. I think the Linux developers made a very good decision to adopt Tux as their mascot. It really has played a part in Linux's success, as silly as that seems.
A successful mascot, even moreso for a gaming machine than an OS, that mascot should really come from a popular game title. It's not just a mascot at that point, it's "Proof of Content" as well.
