Interesting... here's honestly what I thought the Porteus logo was. I always thought that it was the beak (and head) of Tux (the Linux mascot, since Porteus uses the Linux kernel), or that alternatively, it was a dolphin diving into the sea.
To be honest, my chain of thought actually leaned more toward a diving dolphin. Hence, if you look at these modified versions I made, you will notice that they resemble more of a dolphin feel. I found the original definition from fanthom--it is a mix, I guess, of Proteus and "the god of the sea" that changed whenever it wished. So, I was certainly wrong--and now that I look at both more correct viewpoints, I can see that. Thanks for setting me straight on that, guys.
@wread: The "cocktail" idea is truly interesting... here, it seems to be things such as bears, wolverines, rattlers, a lion, or otherwise other "tough" animals. On a noble side for us, which is our national symbol, it's the eagle. Anyway... I just thought this would be cool to share. It is truly neat how every culture sees things in a unique way.
@brokenman: Under my account, I can see both Porteus images I linked to this thread. Are the images not showing up from your view? If so, I need to find a way to fix that. Thanks for letting me know.
@all: Disclaimer I forgot to add before using your logo: The Porteus logo is associated with Porteus and the Porteus Portable Linux Community, respectively. No copyright infringement of the title, or logo was intended in any way.
I'm not sure whether your logo was copyrighted against modifying it as so or not. Should have checked with you guys first. Anyway, it sounds like we've got a logo that will stay.
