Okay - silly question: Where did the FreeNAS shark logo originate? It seems like a reference to the old IBM Enterprise Storage Server codename...

The real question that I have is why does the logo have the front end of a shark, and the tail of a dolphin? Shark tails are generally not symmetrical. The top is usually a bit longer than the bottom, and they do not have the little "notch" in the center.

Someone please fix the logo. It's rankling my inner marine biologist's OCD. Thanks!! :tongue:

FreeNAS is now more-or-less dead and the TrueNAS logos include no such marine aberration, so there you go.
