Recently, Jeff brought up the issue of the use of the old Gnome logo on
The reasoning being that since we decided to switch to the new logo as
our mark back in 2002, it would be nice if they used that mark to
represent stories about us.
Not to be discouraged, I had a go at revamping the logo to meet
Slashdot's high standards. After all, if they were going to switch to
the new logo, they would have done so when we first asked. The result is
This is based on an earlier design, but I think
the drop shadow really completes the image. Iain managed to come up
with a variant
suitable for use on the games sub-site.
This looks ugly, look at it. Malda is blind, they should accept the
original GNOME logo.
I agree with the anonymous guy, don't think this version looks good at
all. Between the drop-shadow and the colouring, it seems to be the logo
with a Slashdot skin, and really doesn't look good to me.
Instead, can I suggest something based on the 2.14 splash or the banner
currently on the Gnome homepage? I think the white foot on blue
background is a good look - simple and clean, without being boring.
The foot is good, but the word probably doesn't need to be there
because it will be in the context of the article, and it also is very
hard to read because of the drop shadow.
Glad to see this wrong being righted!
It needs a photo of Cyborg Bill Gates getting crushed by the
foot...also maybe something with more Google logo, then it would make
it through Slashdot's rigorous design process

Can someone please explain me how is Sony's logo better than GNOME's
official logo (not the current Slashdot one) judging by colors (B&W) and
