I'm not offended by it but, it does make me cringe a bit when I see it. I agree with Cammy, it should be "cute" like Tux & the BSD devil

I have no problem with the current logo.

I do not find it "sexy" but rather "stylish" and "sleek" just like a real cartoon cat. :)

Does anyone else quickly scroll the AROS website up about an inch so that nobody thinks you're surfing furry porn or is it just me?

No, why should I?

I'm actually quite astonished that you can say that in full seriousness.

Why was this not a problem 10 years ago? What the heck is the world coming to? It seems to me that we're heading straight back into dark medieval times, all in the name of political correctness - it's absurd. And I for one, is offended by this kind of nonsense.

It is not the first time it has come up actually. Every so often this is brought up in circles..oddly enough I don't think I brought it up when we interviewed Eric many moons ago on ART but it is not a new observation or discussion. Personally I simply got used to it and it never really phased me too much and as such - unless one of these threads comes up, I forget about it...

Personally I can't stand PC-type nonsense - but at the same token AROS is in a position in which they need and are looking for some broader appeal in bringing in devs. and users/beta-testers. To a certain extent making the mascot a bit more milk-toast or cartoon-y is not a bad idea at all really, in my opinion.

I think Kitty needs a modern redesign, but should not be dumped in favour of a new mascot. If the majority of the population are idiots, then yes, it should be more appealing to them as well.

If an offensive mascot is stopping Aros from gaining a larger userbase then I think it's a problem that needs to be addressed.


This is a surefire win with the general public, then!

Nope, I'm cool with it.

I can't think of a good reason anybody should actually be troubled bye the current logo.

Just my two cents worth.
