Hi all

I've just subscribed to this list, and at the moment I'm basically just 
lurking, but I'm really interested to see how this project will go.

FWLIW, I much prefer the first logo with the mouse inside the ubuntu 
circle (and I love that little animation someone created ;-)

The blue is fine, but I think I would prefer the more purple colors used 
in the last logo (the one without the mouse by Derick Eisenhardt).
