I don't want to sound rude, but you guys are bloating up the logo. Remember where this logo will be. It will be in splashscreens, boot-ui, bootscreens, allovertheplace. And that's why simple logos work better and is more memorable. That's one of the main reasons I used a simpe deformed version of the debian twirl, so it can be resized to very low sized without looking fugly.
Let's just revision some of the best logos in the history of mankind...
Pepsi, Coca Cola, Nike, Apple, Nintendo, Sony, etc. And they are all simple. Clean. Simpe. Unbloat. And every good designer should get inspiration from this.

Ede's design is patterned with dark colors and i think we have to follow that so the logo will have consistency in its look color-wise...and in the first place, the sort of pink color of the debian twirl looks lost in the original Linux Mint logo color pattern. so i guess, we should alter it a bit so that all will fit together...am i right?
1. What? My design is not patterned with dark colors. This is what I made, I'we made nothing else.
I'm no stranger to the thought of replacing the black text with green.
2. It's not pink. It's magenta.
3. Why do we even need the debian-twirl? The Linux Mint-logo does not borrow anything from Ubuntu, neither does ubuntu borrow anything from debian.
4. To comment myself above, I personally like the debian-twirl, and I would like the logo to show where the base is.
You know, I'm going to create a vote. Let's vote on which logo we will use. Even though I don't like democracy.
