I think Haiku needs a mascot. An animal of some sort, to spice up the logo. Looks kind of boring.
Suse-Gecko? FreeBSD-Devil OS X-Cat family What animal would represent Haiku? (dog>tracker?)Maybe it doesn't have to be an animal, but animals are more exciting (i.e Red Hat (hat, although kind of clever, when do you ever see a man's fedora that's red?).
Ok, I hear you, but we have a leaf! Windows has their Windows and Amiga has their boing balls... haha.
Anyways, whatever the decision, keep it unified with the website. The website already has this light blue tone to it, the system ships with a light blue background, so why make an orange and green logo!!??

In number 3 the contrast of the leaf is a bit too low, IMHO.While I think 3 looks best in itself, it's probably not a good candidate because of the low contrast; 1 is a bit too subtle and fine for a logo. I don't like the deviation of the leaf in no 6. And while the colors in 5 are indeed strong, it's actually my favourite (being the Haiku colors and all shiny).I am not sure if I like the rounded lower edges in 2, at least it looksa bit random. But a monochrome logo like this does look good, too.Regarding the alignment of "compatible" in 1 - 3, Jan is right. There're two more pixels space to the left. I also agree, that the "HAIKU" letter spacing looks a bit weird.Absolutely :-) Bye, Axel.
