 +====== 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: [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​List_of_fictional_raccoons|List of fictional raccoons]], [[http://​www.languageisavirus.com/​pet-names/​raccoon-name-generator.html|Raccoon Name Generator]],​ [[http://​answers.yahoo.com/​question/​index?​qid=20080621100040AA569TR|Yahoo!
