Hi Jozsef,

I wasn't aware gimp's splash is modified by Ubuntu. You mean the default
gimp install is in some way overriden by Ubuntu? I have ubuntu-desktop
installed too and did not notice this

Regarding blue: I was thinking of the original logo's colors but they can
change as well since we are voting on the color theme.
Seeing nobody yet proposed the existing logo in non-blue variants we may
just settle on this with possible small alterations. Feel free to propose
another color scheme for the logo.
