Recognition of omething familiar from the positive FLOSS experience
back in the Windows world is an important comfor factor for new users.
That's why I very much like the idea of renaming Firefox to Freefox
and using the logo currently in Debian - just the globe without the
fox. The name not only is visually very similar to the original on the
first glance, but it also emphasises freedom of the software.
