Hi

WOW, i sat in front of the picture and was fascinated. very good work, but as usual I would recommend something ;) : The "lubuntu" lettering could have a LXDE icon in front of it. The idea of the bird, picking up the LXDE Logo is very interesting. Could you explain, what message you want to tell with this?

Dear maces

The idea is that 1. LXDE is so "light" (lightweight LXDE) that it can be lifted by a bird
2. and it goes to the sun; to life.
P.S. I hope I could explain what I meant.

Hey, this is my logo, I figure a slim distro should have a slim logo.
On the first one I made the lxde logo morph the ubuntu logo and made holes in the logo to make it seam lighter.

Okay hello to our newcomers,

@gabrielbutoeru: I like your logo, but I think (as always :P) the blue should be an LXDE blue, and the LXDE icon shouldn't touch the "ring", or is this wanted?

@TnelsonD: I think your Logo is better for an underground-LXDE theme. Don't get me wrong, but I think it's to dark. Just my personal opinion.

@Leo: The changes you have done are very good. I like the picture. Currently nothing to add. My personal favorite :)

EDIT: I found something :D. You could change the radius of your curves (left lower corner), currently the cutting each other. If you could adjust them it would harmonise better, but that's splitting hairs ;).
