The Raccoon Mascot
MINIX 3 has a mascot: a raccoon. The raccoon was chosen because raccoons are small, agile, intelligent, friendly -- and best of all -- eat bugs (at least, when there are no garbage cans available). And, being cute doesn't hurt either.
The MINIX 3 raccoon has no name yet; so, in the spirit of open names, we would like MINIX 3 users to come up with a name. Robert Raccoon? Roberta Raccoon? Roger Raccoon? Andrew Raccoon? Raccoox? Racux? Suggest your own name. Need some inspiration? Here are some useful resources: List of fictional raccoons, Raccoon Name Generator, Yahoo! Answers, Exotic Pet Names

FABIS, the raccoon (friendly agile bug-eating intelligent small)
- Jan M. van Rakenbaoem
- Mapachito ("Small raccoon" in Spanish)
- Minnie - as in a "mini" kernal. Probably about time for a female mascot as well...
