A modified version of Gobo is used as the logo for the Scratch modification Build Your Own Blocks. It has a "tail" depicting the Greek lowercase letter lambda (λ), which, in computer science, represents the time window over which a process is observed for determining the working memory set for a digital computer's virtual memory management.
