Where did your name come from?  Why Panda?

Pandas are a conservation reliant endangered species in need of help by humans to ensure that they continue to exist. We thought by making the panda our symbol of bringing the best help content to software, we might raise awareness around conservation of these amazing animals.

And, who doesn't love a panda?
