While I see where you're coming from, I think you're proposing a radical
change. The strong idea is to put the learner at the centre of his own
learning, signified in Sugar by the XO's logo prominence.

The fact remains that the XO logo icon is a registered trademark
<http://www.trademarkia.com/xo-78880051.html> and therefore we need to
change it, in order to protect our users and downstream distributors
from any limitations imposed by the trademark owner.

Here's what I have currently merged to solved it for now, and it is
already in the Github repository, where a discussion is being held. I'm
sure it can be improved, from the original by Abdo from Noun Project, I
stretched it sideways. I think it conveys "self" "child" and also has a
bit of "feet touching earth" which is very powerful. Also, it has a
slight resemblance to our bigger brother, Gnome, for good reason.

I hope you like it!

Finally, I think it serves well for the purpose of distancing Sugar from
any particular vendor, as people still seem to be confused.

Warm regards,
