Future Logo suggestion

Dragonfly trivia,

(from http://www.4to40.com/earth/geography/htm/insectsindex.asp?counter=10)

"Fossil dragonflies of 250 million years ago had wingspans
up to 80 cm (31.5 in), and were the largest insects known."

A neat skill these critters have is their ability to hover really
well, then dart off at high speed with no apparent latency.

A lightweight threading model, flexible synchronization
and such, should let DragonFlyBSD do much the same.

Here's another snippet:

"While mating, both sexes fly in tandem."

When really good SMP is finalized, how about adding a
second set of wings to the logo to celebrate?


Embodies a DragonFly strength.

. .. and less eye-confusing than a mating pair.. ;-)
