Logo for slack -current


Hi,

I suppose that slackware -current is a some kind of slack based distro, yeah there are differences between
the last official slackware realese and slack -current. So I thought that it deserves its own logo. Nothing very sophisticated. My proposition is to add to the common slackware logo a yellow icon which may be found on websites being in construction, you know the yellow triangle with tools.

The other reason is that there are people who maintain the current version of slack and the logo will be a some kind of a feedback for them.

Greetings,

'current' is just the name we use to refer to the pre-release/development branch of Slackware. It's not a separate distro.

Not really, it's still Slackware. We don't change logos (except the one instance) between versions.

Why would you want a separate logo for a pre-release version of a distro?

The development branch of Slackware (-current) does not need a different logo.

Because you can always stay current and never go back to the official release. Simple.

If(I say *if*) -current need a logo, I will submit this one. It is in red to warn the users that they are in -current :P

I personally fail to see the connection between always staying -current and the necessity to have a distinct logo, but what do I know?

See what other feedback you'll get here. Perhaps, even some slackware devs will express their views on the subject.

It is not that the -current may need logo. Rather the people like me, who are using -current in everyday work
may feel that this should be somehow emphasized. Eg. by a bit different (a bit) logo.

Yes, but the fundamental right will insist that the *magenta* actually denotes sexual orientation and is yet another example of *liberals* promoting homosexuality, which ultimately, apparently, results in rampant paedophelia, climaxing in jihaad and suicide bombings.

So, rather than risk being labelled anything other than *human*, I'll stick with the non-logo (though I do like the idea....)

cheers,

That looks Ubuntu 10.04 influenced

Maybe a yellow triangle as a background ?

Where do you see the Slackware logo, at any point in time? I know I see it only once, upon LILO booting up, and you can easily change that logo in /etc/lilo.conf -- and that's only if you use a graphical LILO boot. Unlike many other distros the Slackware logo is not very visible...before the graphical LILO boot screen it was easy to forget it even had one. So with that said, and since LILO can boot Slackware -current *or* stable *or* Windows *or* a completely different distro etc., I don't see how replacing the logo at the LILO boot prompt would necessarily reflect the nature of the *running* OS anyway.

Just my opinion of course.
