I did not want to get in a religious discussion in a OS forum and I was not attacking FreeBSD. I was just trying to show how some may not even base their decision on a technical matter. Not even taking a look at it based on a non-technical thing. People make decisions based on appearance all the time. Advertisers spend millions of dollars making their products as appealing as possible. I was showing how I view it. And I know I'm not alone. I called to cancel my CD subscription and the nice lady I spoke with said that the mascot was one of the biggest complaints people had.
