Nope. Beastie is a way of life. I'd be quite upset if it were dropped
for whatever reason. It is so intimately tied to FreeBSD that it would
be a PR disaster if it were to be changed. NetBSD never had a real
logo, and it's their choice (though IMHO not a very good one; even a
toaster would have been better!), but changing FreeBSD's most widely
recognized brand would be just plain stupid. Imagine Linux dropping Tux
for some meanlingless, lifeless logo?

Hands off from our beloved Beastie!
