I personally vote for logo #11, given the choices on Doug's link above.
It has a nice combination of readable font, sufficient space around the letters
(enhancing readability), and proportions which will make resizing the logo/banner (and
poss. combining it with graphics) easy.

I'm under the impression that Linux developers are beholden to the happy, cuddly,
non-competetive Penguin as a symbol of Linux machines/programs/systems, no matter how
many of them you'll see in the Linux expos. It's branding...and allows people unfamiliar
with SEUL to identify it as a Linux solution.

I suggest an interesting variation on the theme: an adult penguin cuddling/nurturing a
chick (representing the role the SEUL/edu organization and Linux plays in caring for
children).  I don't have any images on hand at this moment but I can compose one if
people think it's an idea worth exploring.
