    Ok, so we all know who Wilber is and how he's the mascot for Gimp, but, what kind of animal, if that, is he?? --> :wilber:

    is he a dog? that's what he looks like. If you can tell me what he is, or come close, I'll write a nice biography about Wilber and his legacy. (I'm stuck on the part of what he is)

    ^-^ ^-^

    You're missing the point. Its like the tradition of recursive acronyms in open source software, eg.
    'WINE' : WINE Is Not an Emulator. 'NiL' : NiL isn't Liero

    GIMP's mascot is Wilber, Wilber is a gimp, a gimp is a software whose mascot is Wilber. The definition is circular. Understand?

    sglider12 : Is that poll supposed to have a 'submit' button? I have no idea how there is a vote for dog-panda already registered, since I only see a 'view results' link and 'Polldaddy.com' link

    lol yeah i do get it, but let's make him something more materialistic, as in, something you can hold physically, whereas you can't hold software in your hand, and no, burned to a CD or on a flash drive, etc, doesnt count  ^-^ ^-^

    so vote!! http://www.polldaddy.com/p/506942/  ^-^ ^-^


    i see a vote button....but in the results it said there was 1 vote dog and 1 vote panda-dog, so ur vote must have been submitted ^-^
