SEUL: Fwd: Re: Request for comments: seul logo

As for the fonts, I am very strongly in favor of a font that gives
us a good strong 'S'. Not a backwards Z, not a backwards ?, not a squiggly
line -- a real live S. :)

I've put them where they belong now.

I like these designs, the dots between the letters are very nice. As you say
I'm afraid the simple end user linux text would disapear after a bit of
scaling. I think I might play around with adding the dots to a version of the
original, with all capital letters some time tomorrow. (unless of course
someone beats me to it).

Not sure about these. I didn't get any "Oh, I like that" feeling from any of them.

This was interesting. I think we might want to run through a few different
fonts on the logo and see if we can't find a better one that the font I used
