Penguins, Lizards and Apple's X Factor: How Famous OS Logos Got Started

OpenSUSE from Novell

openSUSE, a general-purpose, Linux-based OS sponsored by Novell, uses a cuddly chameleon named Geeko as its mascot. This little green guy has been with openSUSE since the beginning in one design or another, and was given his moniker by users in an open name competition. "Geeko" is a contraction of geek (what most people are who care about open-source technology) and gecko (a small lizard found in warm climates). No relation to the Gecko car insurance mascot, by the way.

The logo most likely to: catch a cricket with its tongue and eat it.
