*I love the Feet Logo. Lots of thanks for doing this for Sugar :D*

*The new icon is simple, elegant and fits the purpose of clearly setting
the starting point of the Sugar experience:*

Indeed the "feet touching earth" are very powerful concept totally aligned
with the GDG.

The fact they look like they are about to start walking sets a "resilience
tone" ideal for learners.

Finally, I think it serves well for the purpose of distancing Sugar from

*Yes! Sugar Labs needs to be totally neutral will all hardware vendors.*

I would love to see it on Sugarizer too!


Warm regards,
