First of all, great work! You've clearly done this before :-)

I personally really liked the look of Set 4, the Eastern Influence, though
my concern would be that it doesn't really bring anything across as to what
SEUL or its subsidiaries are - in fact, given the oddity of the pseudo-word
seul, people may assume that it is an Asian project of some type, not even
neccessarily Linux oriented (if you'll excuse the pun!).

Given that, I'd recommend Set 6. They're graphiacally pleasing, and the
icons for EDU and PUB immediately provoke feelings of school and
publishing, respectively. The fact that "Simple End User Linux" is spelled
out clears up any question as to what this is about. I could see attending
an Educational or a Linux conference and immediately identifying what that
booth was there for.

If Set 6 was chosen, I'd probably choose the Sun logo for SEUL proper.
While I've always assumed that seul sounded like tool, I like the thought
of Sol, and it might be worth changing the pronunciation for the logo's
sake - I've never heard of a sool, and wouldn't know where to begin drawing

Just my two cents!
