Description:

Simplistic Ubuntu Maverick logo. Why can't Canonical pick theme animals that lend themselves better to artwork?

I said it was simplistic! Never claimed to be an artist. Please feel free to do something more elegant.

Dude, I gotta say, this makes Ubuntu look like trash. This is terrible. That's not clip art, clip art should be in the form of SVGs simply because of how well they stretched. You basically took two stretched raster images and plastered one over the other. Artifacts are everywhere, white specks, the cow looks bad, and it doesn't look like you did any work.

This has the GNU fanart contenders in the dust. Way to blow it, I'm just sorry, dude.

I don't much care for the name either, but a maverick is term for unbranded cattle, regardless of age. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maverick_(animal)

Hum...

Every ubuntu releases use an adjective and an animal (e.g., "Dapper Drake", "Intrepid Ibex", "Jaunty Jackalope", "Karmic Koala", "Lucid Lynx").
So Maverick is the adjective and Meerkat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meerkat) is the animal.

It's explained on the Ubuntu wikipedia page, in the Release part (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_%28operating_system%29#Releases)

In this case, maverick is an adjective, not a noun. And as a noun, it refers to a calf, not a full-grown longhorn.

Just FYI...

</me grumbles> Besides, I still think "Manic Marmot" was a better mascot suggestion...
