    Phoronix: X.Org Is Looking For A New Logo

    XDS 2010 has just begun in Toulouse, France. Well, besides yesterday's pre-event where we were discussing Wayland and other topics. At the moment just the X.Org Foundation itself is being discussed...

    Recording in HD, with integrated microphone is just pointless.
    It won't do any good job for non native speakers like me, who need to hear talks very clear to understand
    Please Michael, can't you arrange external microphone output, and then replace stream audio with it?

      I think he's actually recording from line, so the audio source will be clear.

        That's right. I barely understood a word in last years recordings.

          For the pure audio MP3 file that is from the line source, but not for the video recording. Those so inclined can manually mix the two, but I have no plans to bother properly mixing it for a non-premium distribution.

            As I promised, I am going premium as soon as my new VISA card gets acknowledged. Should I understand you will do the mix for premium videos?

              I got an awesome, simple, recognisable, distinct, split in two pieces ("client and server") and only one color logo. But I need a good GIMP expert...

                I also strongly suggest renaming X.org project to something more easily searchable via search machines.

                  I find X.org to be a very simplistic and ellegant name. How's Apple any good for search?

                    A logo should really be done with a vector drawing program like Inkscape. What exactly do you have in mind for the logo?

                      what is wrong with the current logo? it's perfectly fine and doesn't look old in any way.

                        This was the other thing I forgot to say. It's simple and clean. Compared to some logos, it may as well be the gold standard.

                        The X.org logo is the X.org logo. It's not like anyone else can really claim they had it first unless they've had it since 1984 or so.

                          I've always found the X.org logo pretty cool. Certainly better than most other FOSS logos.

                            How about this?


                            (I am so sorry for this, but I just couldn't resist. And when I'd done all the work it felt like a bad idea not to upload it. It's not meant for trolling, but for a good laugh..)

                              Hi!

                              Upon seeing this article in my feed I HAD to dive in here. I'm a professional logo and brand identity designer and I use open source tools in my work. I would LOVE to have the opportunity to design the X.org Foundation's new logo. In fact, I recently made a post on my site about giving back to the open source community.

                              How do I get in contact with them? Their site doesn't seem to provide an easy way to get in touch with them. =[

                              Thanks for any help in advance. =]
