I think there are one or two problems with 'medicine mask' that strike
me first of all. One is the format. The width/height ratio makes it too
incongruous with the name to work in many applications. The other is
the African implications. Ubuntu is African by name not usage. When I'm
using Ubuntu there is nothing African about it. The term is African,
yes, but thats where it ends. I certainly wouldnt push the African
theme any more than just the root of the word. The original icon works
as a derivative of an illustration of community, which is more what
Ubuntu is about.
