In my opinion we should be thankful that Bruce Perens took a decision
and ended the what seemed to be an everlasting competition. It's bad
for a product not to have a logo and maybe even worse to have a lot of
differently looking logos which was about to be the situation. Private
persons took the logo of their choice and used it to associate with
Debian on web pages etc.

Even though I had a competitive logo I think Bruce Perens made an
excellent choice. It would have been bad to make a "blind" majority
choice. Comparing to eb07 it have many advantages as a logo. Most of
them you can read about in earlier mails to this list.
