Why QSOS monkeys?
Yesterday they made their very first coming out on the new QSOS Website…
But why monkeys? Isn’t QSOS own logo all about a Tux?
Well, starting whith Linux, a lot of open source projects use animal as a totem:
- Perl is a Camel
- PHP is an Elephant
- Squid is… a Squid
- And so on…
This was democratized by O’Reilly’s coverbooks also.
So QSOS being about technological watch of many open source projects, it has no problem with being labelled as a menagerie.
And furthermore, monkeys here signify at least three more things:
As a wise triad, Iwazaru, Kikazaru & Mizaru mean: There is not evil in QSOS!
I feel more linked to monkeys, that must be the african part of my heritage
I even was bitten by one when I was younger, maybe Linus had the same Eureka! moment when being charged at by a penguin ;)
