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 though. 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!
