Thanks for the feedback, Brian! That is always HUGELY helpful. I’ll convey that to the design team and I’m hoping you also took a moment to include your feedback on the tinyurl.com/OSmascot page  (because it makes it a lot easier for us to see all feedback side-by-side). Either way, I’m very appreciative of your thoughtful input!
