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

LOL, just had to confirm:

5% scored higher (more nerdy),
0% scored the same, and
95% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

All hail the monstrous nerd. You are by far the SUPREME NERD GOD!!!

Dammit!!! I only scored 92%. I guess going out on Fridays and not noticing the girl's pointy ears contributed to my low score, LOL

I think it possibly means we both should spend less time on the PC - and maybe get out more

It is not a question of my ego. I only proposed to create a logo for slack -current. And try to explain my reasons for that. I think the idea is good, the project of the logo is also not very bad. That's all.

I personally don't think a new logo is needed for -current, but, I believe in FOSS. If you would like to develop a new logo for -current then go for it.

Ok. I have no skills to create a logo by myself, so if there is a person who are reading this thread now and is able to made good looking logo please help.

I suppose there are people, despite myself who will appreciate that.

But as already brought up, even if -current was for some reason given it's own special logo, where would it be? Slackware employs almost zero "branding", so there isn't even an obvious place to display this hypothetical logo.

I don't feel to be competent to describe differences between stable and current. I can only say what does it mean for me. Current never becomes stable. As it is in still development. Stable release it something finished and closed. Moreover it seems for me that some features which now has -current may never appear in stable release (for different reasons). Of course maintaing -current version on your computer is rather complex task, but having -current gives you some advantages.

Perhaps I don't precisely understand your question but logos appear usually in places like web sites, splash screens, screen savers etc.
