the new logo

well...the new logo is up after months of secrecy...

and....

i can't believe out of all of the entries, they picked the most horrific, ugly, piece of unoriginality ever to be selected for a logo...

the other contestants must've been kids drawing in crayola...

disgusting...

sorry i had to vent my frustrations...

extremely disappointing.

Re: the new logo

Regarding this topic, check out the "Farewell Sweet Daemon" article.

I really like the new logo in combination with that kind of webdesign. Hopefully it will be accepted as the new design of www.NetBSD.org, after some minor changes.

Re: the new logo

The new logo is ugly, even with that new design, it does help, and looks nice, but would look nicer without the new logo.

Re: the new logo

Well, we don't got root, so we will have to obey the NetBSD crew.
And the new logo ins't that ugly. Even if the toaster is more NetBSD than the flag.
I would love to have a toster running NetBSD as a router:)

Re: the new logo

Those of you whom disliked the new logo, do you still think it's that hideous or are you more comfortable with it nowadays?

Re: the new logo

It´s still kind of ugly, but i guess we are getting used to it tongue They really should try to make the new logo fit better on the webpage with matching colors.

Well, if you're not, you're still able to fall back on the NetBSD.SE daemon. (-:

Yeah, I couldn't agree more. In fact, I thought they'd launch a new website together with the announcement of the logo. Such an incorporation might have given the new logo a better push into the community.

Looking back on things, it's always easy to be wise afterwards.
