This is the correct option; the logo either should be removed,
replaced with the open use debian logo, replaced with a freely
licensed image of your choice, or replaced with an empty image. [The
main problem with the Gentoo logo is that it doesn't have a licence
statement which allows users to modify the logo.]
The decision as to which solution to use is of course the
PowerPoint is symptomatic of a certain type of bureaucratic
environment: one typified by interminable presentations with lots of
fussy little bullet-points and flashy dissolves and soundtracks masked
into the background, to try to convince the audience that the goon
behind the computer has something significant to say.
