Tasmanian Devil Committed to Linux Kernel

Last Monday Linus Torvalds did a commit to replace the Linux mascot Tux with Tuz in the Linux kernel version 2.6.29. Tuz will be the mascot in this release to raise awareness for the endangered Tasmanian devil, which is threatened with extinction due to the Tasmanian Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD).

Linux engagement for the Tasmanian devil started at this year's Linux Conference Australia which was held in Hobart, Tasmania in January 2009. You can support the efforts to save the Tasmanian devil, by making a donation.
