Why  was  the  logo  chosen ?

357

Quoting  Appu ,

“The Tasmanian Devil is in danger of extinction and the Linux community is doing its part to prevent that from happening.

The Linux community, spearheaded by Linus Torvalds himself, have decided to take a temporary substitute for Tux, the Linux penguin mascot, in the form of a Tasmanian Devil. The guest mascot will be aptly known as Tuz, who will be standing in for Tux during the whole duration of the Linux 2.6.29 kernel cycle”

i’m going for some wild guesses –
could this be a logo of some organisation from N Zealand, or maybe some group of anti-darwinists?
