I don't see any reason why we shouldn't atleast specify the desire for it
to be created in a free program. I don't want our logo being made using
Adobe Photoshop running on NT4.
As for being strictly Gimp, the way I see it, we get more artistic entries
(not paint shop pro type work) by using this means (the Gimp website
contest). There are a lot of talented people involved with Gimp. If we
were to try and do this on our own, we wouldn't get half the response, nor
half the quality.
