Repost since for some reason all my text was gone...

Wow, this is a nice thread for a show review article...

This long and detailed discussion about a logo does explain a bit to me why so many "show-off" features for Select like round buttons, new hi-res icons, screensavers etc. are so high on the wishlist for some. That does get me thinking about what the main need for the users is: have a usable computer, or have a nice gadget to look at and perhaps show around. Well that might explain a bit too why MS put so much effort in desktop-effects for Vista. For me I want a usable and preferrably quick computer and for that most of the modern "good-looks-features" are barely and help and some are even a pain and it is good if you can disable them. And as for screen saver I want that to simply put the monitor into power saving mode (saves my money and is good for nature) since usually when screensaving starts it is due to me not being near the computer anyhow.

But as for a logo as such it is indeed important to attract new customers but I dare say that for that the logo is by far not enough... for that I dare suggest that the things offered, shown on the web site etc. and available to take away are more important...

Another statement did really surprise me: That there are supposedly no women using RISC OS - I agree that there are just a few but there are some which are even pretty active like Harriet Bazley and Louie from RISC OS Now.
