Sorry - maybe this has been discussed too long.

Yes, it has - it's a simple futura "ftosorcim" with a small sector cut off 
the "o". Earlier it was a IBM-like striped "o" and a slightly other font. 
My point is - the process of logo-creation should not be too much delayed 
by a) people like me who talk a lot and b) people like most logo-submitters 
who seem too think "hmm. look at this cute tool bar in gimp. script-fu's 
pretty, too. Let's mix it together". Logo must be simple and might even 
consist mostly of typo. Way to go, gimps ... maybe the gimpists should 
indeed have a look at sites like sj.com or the like ... :-)

One had to say that.
