Personaly, it does not bother me to make a historical reference. The mask is 
not a reference to Disneyland but rather to Venizia canrival, where people 
change identities.

Also, the mask icon is quite different from other icons, in the hope that it 
"flashes the eye" on desktops:

Anyway, if there is a potential misunderstanding, I will forget about 
carnival. Does anyone share John understanding here?

I like the idea of Gazelle, which is supposed to be fast and intelligent. When 
under attack, she is not running in the same direction, not like other 
animals... Also, she is quite light, same as QEMU design.

Thanks for your feedback. I will propose other logos in the next days, as I am 
quite busy with the FreeOsZoo site.

Kindest regards,
