Lately, I've been paying special attention to logos and symbols. I don't know why, but the Ubuntu logo caught my eye in a way that I haven't thought of before. Am I reading too much into this, or is there something more behind that friendly logo of ours? 🙂

    Two questions:

    (1) Why is ubuntu aesthetically so ugly (indeed the ugliest of the three)?

    (2) What's the one on the left?

    IIRC, the left one is Biohazard.

    Ugoatu logo?

    P.S. Your OpenID login doesn't work.

    And so, can You tell us how much Micro$oft paid you to attack the Ubuntu community from the inside? Or they just used Your family as a hostage? 😀
    Is this how they try to put pressure on Mark Shuttleworth to sign the evil deal with them?

    Just kidding!

    It is really interestingly similar shapes about the three logos. I hope the third one keeps me passioned about what it represent.

    My response, which of course, digs in to word definitions, and the like.

    I think the Kubuntu "gearheads" logo looks better. 😛

    I don't like the color scheme in the GNOME breed of Ubuntu.

    I just noticed, the ubuntu logo is that of three people holding hands in a cirlce.

    It occured to me after i realized each of the dots were a different colour than their respective arc.
