    New MySQL logo


    MySQL have just announced a new logo with a dolphin image. You can check it out here: http://www.mysql.com/news/article-77.html

    Apparently, the jumping dolphin "symbolises the speed, power, precision and good nature of the MySQL database and community."

    What do people think? Does anyone care?

    It's lame. Couldn't they have used a better animal like a lion, cheetah, gorilla, etc.?

    I think it's alright. What does a dolphin have to do with a database, you ask? What does a bloody penguin have to do with an operating system?
