Debian & Linux Mint Logo

Post by talsadus »

Did you know,

Debian Logo is just a reflection of number 1 in Thai ๑.

And Linux Mint Logo looks just like number 2 in Thai ๒.

It seems to be I'm not the one who had noticed likeness between Mint's logo and Kmer digit "2". I wrote about that recently on the forum: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=68700

The comparison in colour can be found here: http://apps.creounity.com/time_machine/ ... ting_facts
I just want to add that since Khmer and Thai numerals look identically, Thai digit "2" also reminds the logo of Mint.

And, thanks for the analogy between "1" and Debian! I'll add that as well to my webapp (which is about numerals and chronological systems around the world).
