ah. well. Speaking as the person who
o tried for 12 months to get community input on the name and logo, and
o who then went to a small group in search of input, and
o who tried to design a voting mechanism and
o again requested input, and
o got nothing from anyone!, and
o who greatly appreciates your contributions to coreboot,

I am very sorry you feel this way!

I have passed this logo by a great many NON-coreboot, NON-computer
types. They loved it, without exception. That said, we could consider
community input and a vote and I feel pretty strongly that the new
logo would win such a vote :-)

We need to make some progress here. I love the new logo, personally,
but more important, it's time to move on on the name change and logo.
We tried and failed for one full year to get a new logo. This was the
best we were able to get. But, I think it's really, really good.

Let's get a decision on this. Do we vote?
