First of all, I have to say that I like very much your work. I think the  
look of the logo makes the Xubuntu logo the best looking of the *ubuntus.

I do have 3 ideas I'll share, and I'm willing to take some beating for  
1) I believe that the colours should be toned down, they seem too bright.
2) The Gimp logo needs some sort of pallete, or less colours, to make it
look more integrated.
3) Could the GDM theme have a shorter container for the logo and username/

Hope you don't mind the suggestions (I've seen on my own how hard is to  
graphics, while trying to find a logo for a Linux Users Group site...).
