Not sure what Wired magazine was thinking - but they named Larry one of the lamest tech icons! :?

I can see how someone would think that Larry is lame (I personally like Larry the Cow).

However, it seems they also thought that Tux was lame!

:twisted: Grr.

How dare they blaspheme the bovine mascot of our distribution. Larry may be a female with a male's name, but we love him anyway :P

I love Larry and I'd like to see him on my dinner plate.

But really, we are users of Gentoo Linux. Gentoo == a penguin. Gentoo != cow. We need a penguin mascot, not a cow mascot.

Gentoo is not only Linux these days ;) Look at [Gentoo-alt] project.

Actually, if you read the commentary, it seems the pictures are a mixture of lame and cool mascots. I read the article a while ago, but if I recall, they were saying Larry was cool.
