I think the short sign "Cool It Works With Linux" displayed in the Linux Journal
a couple of weeks ago is best logo by far. If you want the Linux operating system to be taken
seriously, it probably best not to use a cute penguin. I know my boss (who could possibly
think about setting up a huge Linux intranet) would not be impressed.

If you have an eye catching little logo (see above) then poeple who see this on
there hardware/etc will may be interested to find out what it is all about!!

Having a logo deriding windows/FreeBSD etc.. is just a little sad, Linux is more
than that! Please try to think about logos that present the professional
viability of Linux

Keep Up The Good Work


P.S. Kind of a long thread, no?
