You know, now that I look at it, you're right. It is simple and elegant!

From a biological perspective, plants are primary producers, without them the world wouldn't exist.

Via photosynthesis, they convert solar energy into chemical energy and provide food for secondary consumers.

OS X, and all other operating systems with animals can be viewed as secondary consumers because they've taken pieces from other operating systems, whereas Haiku produced itself.

In this context, whoever thought of the leaf was brilliant!

Hi all,

I have also worked a bit on a HAIKU COMPATIBLE logo. I have collected my
ideas so far here:

All of them are great, but I find #1 and #5 most attractive. But I do
agree with Michael - the classical sticker aspect ratio seems more
natural for such things.

I think Haiku needs a mascot. An animal of some sort, to spice up the logo.
Looks kind of boring.

Since I'm one of those simplicity lovers, I'm all against any mascot's
for Haiku. In my opinion, a leaf is all we need - it's simple, elegant
and certainly fits Haiku the best. No additions needed. The same is with
actual haiku, where the beauty is hidden beneath only a few words.
Just my 5 cents.

Best regards,
