Anyone who was so afraid of beastie, or the new logo, would never use 
FreeBSD. One days traffic on this maillist and the language would send 
them elsewhere.

I propose that people who subscribe to the idea that a devil on the box 
means a devil inside, constitute a very minor percentage of the 
population. I also propose that more potential FreeBSD users are lost 
due to the lack of native RPM support and GUI installation tools. I 
would not change the installation, ports system, or logo to suit those 
people. None of those three groups are worth the calories being expended 
in this conversation.

This entire thread is funny, and sad.
