In general, I'm +1 on the logo.

I agree with the writer who suggested that using the Ubuntu font for
the whole logo gives a better sense of the "connectedness" of U-W with
Ubuntu. I'd prefer that over a script or over using the serif-font
that Troy used.

It sounds like the people on the art list didn't realise that the
Ubuntu font is now available. Troy, if you want it you can install it
from apt:
sudo apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-title

Or download it from the wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DIYMarketing

I like Troy's way of doing the logo better than the idea of getting
rid of one of the "heads," as suggested in the second post.
