Option 1, and if we really can't then, option 2. Carlos has just posted
some nice examples... I mean it would be great if we could keep our owl
like he has (i.e. is it about the fonts whatever 'it' is?)

So I'm not even sure this vote counts anymore, I mean if foundation
simply cannot use our existing logo then it is a moot point.

Thanks to Heidi for working on the logos, and fwiw, if we didn't already
have a logo, the proposed one looks great. As others have commented, we
have t-shirts and stickers with the tripleo owl on it so for many in
this community there is a very strong association between that
particular image and this project

thanks, marios
