Seriously, it bothers me, not in the least. I just want an OS that works, who cares about the eye candy?

This is like when my asks which pattern I like for the new dishes . . . . Not to cause problems I look at the first one and the second one and then back to the first one and say that's the one I like because it matches the curtains.

So I will say the first one - it matches the curtains.

I do like the shade of green better, though.
I do, too. Nonetheless, I agree with you in that I prefer the original. I am hesitant to use "advertising department" language, but the official logo just looks more... organic(?) to my eye. Maybe it reminds me of a leaf or something, I don't know :roll: .

I do wish that it didn't have that "faded" section where the line on the bottom right curves, though.

But I'm an odd one and even I know it, lol. For example, in general, I dislike the color green (although in a mild sense of the term "dislike"), and very much prefer the color blue - but I cannot help but think the official logo would look worse if it were blue instead of green.

Just my opinion. The urge to fix that which is not truly broken in the first place has been the driving force behind a great many things linux - which is why there are "1,001 ways to skin a dead cat" when we are running it; many applications that basically serve the same function and such. And I suppose that this is probably a good thing - although I do occasionally find myself wondering what could have been accomplished if all those countless development hours spent on duplicating things... had been spent on something else entirely. Cold fusion, perhaps :P .

It's cool :D There was already something very similar posted in the past (but can't remember where), you may have a look here too

viewtopic.php?f=19&t=150951

and it's a bit reminding of Tic Tac's logo
