Bruce choose the logo personally despite the fact that other logos had 
higher votes. Aside from this the logo is unprofessional and will
make a poor first impression on those who are trying to decide which
Linux distribution they should use.

The "official" logo will create only negative impressions of the Debian
distribution before people honestly evaluate its technical excellence.
It makes little sense that we should have to succeed _despite_ the quality
of our logo.

I commend you for your sincere concern but would ask you to carefully
evaluate your perception that the current logo is sufficient. Let us
carry the same high standards for our public presence that we have for
our technical implementations.
