Debian Chooses A New Logo
July 25, 1999

>> News

Debian has, as the result of a GIMP Logo contest [URL.... where is the best 
place to get a good look at it?] chosen a new Logo.  The logo was selected 
by a vote of the Debian developers, and the winning entry was submitted by 
Raul M. Silva of onShore.com and can be seen on the main Debian web pages.  
Licenses and conditions for use can be found at [URL....]

  The logo is .... (description of what it symbolizes from Raul) ... and is 
affectionately known as 'The Swirl.'

  As the winner of the contest, Raul receives a debian.org email address as 
well as a CD of the latest Debian distribution for the architecture of his 
choice.  Debian wishes to thank all of the participants in the contest.  And 
remember: if it doesn't crash, it's Debian! [just kidding... I'll remove 
that... just checking if people actually read this :)]
