Well that's true for ubuntu and kubuntu as well, not all desktop software in
is strictly gnome or kde (firefox, OOo) although it is more so than with
Either way I am not comfortable with logos that are very far off the ubuntu
that are not human circles at all for instance.

true as  well. But those could not be nicely blended with  the ubuntu circle
and they're not
as cute  as the mouse ;). But as it has been said the gears are there to
hint at kde.

But the running mouse in the ubuntu logo during Xfce start is really

yes, although I need to put back the original fading mouse as well which is
just overwritten now.
And need to disable startup notification somehow while the splash is running
since it is a progress
indicator by itself,

Lets discuss that tomorrow during the meeting...
