This was not my topic to discuss.  Yes I think to stick on gimp is an
idea which makes the thing not so productive as it could be, but I'm
in the process to tell the "joiner" I mentioned *what* he should do.
The tool he might use or not use is a subject to discuss in another

Moreover I really can't understand the problem of the non gimp fraction:
Why not use the program of your choice, export the result, import it
into gimp and viola, ready is the gimp graphic.  That's a stupid
discussion here and I don't want to deal with it, because I want to
aim the result.  The ability of scaling of the logo in my opinion would
suggest a vector drawing program, but this are technical terms.

Does the firm you mentioned have a logo?  That's a serious question
I really can't remember it.  Obviousely it must be a bad logo...
May be I should go and find a W?? box to get some bad-logo-education :).

Thanks for that :)
