The FreeDOS fish mascot is named Blinky. The short story behind this is Jim wanted to have a mascot for FreeDOS, and really wanted a seal. He thought a seal would go well with the Linux penguin mascot. But there was already another FreeDOS program called SEAL with the obvious mascot. Instead, we chose a fish. Bas Snabilie designed our FreeDOS fish mascot. We later dubbed him "Blinky" because of his googly eye.
Our first website logo was created by our then-webmaster and then-coordinator, M. "Hannibal" Toal. We have updated the logo only a few times in our history. Our current website is based on the FreeDOS fish mascot designed by Bas Snabilie.
