I'm a fan of Tux.  Friendly, approachable, yet somehow crisp and computer-y.  I think all Linux distros should, as a matter of branding, have him in their logos or icons.  Different distros would have him in different situations, holding different tools, doing different things, wearing different accessories, etc.  Or at the very least have the distro logo on his belly like a Care Bear.

Here's a link to an image I threw together of Tux sitting on the Linux Lite feather.  In it, Tux is apparently so light the feather can support him as it floats about.  What better way to convey not merely that this OS is light, as the feather on its own does, but also that this is a version of Linux, specifically, that is light?

Sorry to Jerry if this is sacrilege...

Very nice design, thanks for sharing, but would prefer Tux to be at least 50% smaller. I would like to use this as my desktop background for LL2.8 (LL3 does not work on my 9 year old P4 hardware). Maybe I can do some Gimp editing on Tux.  :)
1) Lenovo T520 i5 LL3.8 8GB ram, fast & stable
2) Medion P4 32bit LL3.8 1GB ram, quite fast & stable
3) eeePC 901 32bit LL3.8 1GB ram, fast & stable
4) eeePC 701 32bit LL3.8 1GB ram, slower & stable but small and light enough to travel with me to New Zealand when visiting family in Blenheim.

Very nice Carney thanks for sharing.

I scaled it on the desktop to leave the lite-widget on the right.

I do like the idea of Tux sitting on the feather.

Here's another two others of Tux riding the Linux Lite feather.  This time, the background is sky blue and one of the feathers is the transparent version from this post https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/member-submitted-artwork/transparent-feather-background/msg8500/#msg8502 for which we can all thank sysdrum https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/profile/?u=104.

By the way, I don't like the shorter, cross-eyed / googly-eyed sillier looking Tux, or the flapping-wing Tux (looking at you, Knoppix).

Sorry, I'm a total newbie.  I figured out how to do it and did it.  If the pictures are too big I'll try to learn how to shrink them, if that's possible.
