Re: Inappropriate use of Debian logo.

Correct, I swirled it too much, that is my point.

What are the odds that the blue logo in question swirled their logo pixel-for-pixel the same as Debian's?  I believe the odds are low given the couple minutes of work I put into using the tool (Illustrator).

You swirled it too much. Other than that, it's the same.
