Yeah, BAD publicity.

I use and like linux, but we must recognize that BSD is strong in
certain areas where linux is not and that it would not be in anyone's
best interests for such a picture to end up on any CD. My feeling is
that such a picture could be viewed as childish to outsiders and could
actually turn a lot of people off. From my viewpoint, the competition
that exists between these two OS' is healthy. I am much more concerned
about Microsofts of the world.
