New Linux mascot.

The rumors are true, Tux days are counted, our long-time Linux mascot can finally go into retirement and rest.
Introducing Tuz, a Tasmanian devil camouflaged as a penguin, the official 'release' will be with the new kernel 2.2.29.
Linus Torvalds sent Tux in a 'sabbatical 3 month vacation' and presented Tuz to the main kernel developers, Linus said this way he hopes to bring more attention to the Tasmanian devil which is in danger of extinction due to "Devil Facial Tumour Disease", some rare form of transmissible cancer.
