Lightbulb Slackware new logo Pool


Everybody has an opinion about the new logo.

But what about a simple poll to quantify it?

Don't you think a 6+ page post about the logo is enough already? How long are we going to debate something non of us can change whether we like it or not.

not debating. Debate is another thread. Just a pool here. I'd like to a general idea about what everybody said, so I could read it all and they count and see how many liked and how many disliked, but it is easier to make a poll.

Please, people, use the other post to debate it:

It is not a pool but a poll.
You swim in a pool.
To take a poll is to get the input from other people.

I think Ubuntu and Gentoo need a new logo.

Best buy the shirts now before they are not sold any more an turned into a collectors item that only the geekiest of the geeks that wish they would have bought one then would buy it at auction for a bazillion slack... or something like that. I bet if you 'distressed' it (basically run it through a washer with rocks and glass) those retarded kids who think that stuff is cool wouldn't understand what the hell it is and would want to wear it simply because nobody can understand it. Then they would be like "if you can't read this, you just don't understand me. I hate you! get out of my face." they they will go cry to their therapist about how jenny screwed their boyfriend then spread rumors about them on myspace...

I'm sure I could continue all day but this is getting tiring...

New logos just show that effort was put into the product which totally contradicts the theme of slack. But OMG!!! a boot image was added to slackware!!! what's going to happen next? custom logos for the frame buffer??? custom background images??? themes!?!?!? How dare them!

The new logo is so hideous, that decorum prevents us from discussing it here!

Guess which choice I selected in your pool
