well, OpenBSC, OsmoSGSN, OpenGGSN and even layer23, osmcom, osmoload, etc.
all run on the host PC, preferrably running Linux.  So besides the firmware
part, everything else actually has somewhat of a connection to Linux - though
not really.  Dieter runs everything but OsmoSGSN on Windows, and it should
be pretty portable on any POSIX OS.

So yes, I agree, referring to tux is probably not the best idea in our logo.
