I don't know, while the swirl is familiar and everything, there's
nothing in it that really jumps out at me and says that's a really
great logo that captures what Debian is in the same sense that
(off the top of my head) the VMware (in particular) or
RedHat/SuSE/FreeBSD logos do.  There are a lot of similar swirl logos
around which look awfully similar (some even having strangely similar
spiky bits; the last one I saw was on a bottle of drinking water but
in silver rather than red).

I really liked the personality of the "Debian chicken", though it
wouldn't have hurt to redraw it nicely.  Maybe a bit Linux-specific

I also really liked the black and white GNU + penguin on the old
Apache default index page with the proud and mighty Gnu looking down
gravely towards the small upstart Penguin!
