I've never seen it before, but then, the only versions that I have run are 17.x and 18.x Cinnamon

Copyright is one reason; I bet tradition is another. Tux, after all, is not just any penguin.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

That was a fascinating article, Moem.
I admit, I've always been partial to the cute Tux, not the Tuxes (Tuxi?) with submachine guns blowing away windows.
I was glad to see Linux wanted them "cuddly", lol.
