The border gives definition to the logo when scaled down. The problem
is that it was made in bitmap, which deteriorates during scaling. If I
will have time I give a shot to it in vector, like Illustrator. That
would be much better.

Kubuntu seems stagnates on the distrowatch and now that mepis became
an ubuntu based distro I doubt kubuntu will pick up more users. Mepis
is extremely popular among user and will be more popular in the
future. I also use it. But xubuntu is rises because more and more high
end computer users adopt it.

I read the xubuntu edgy ideas and I found reorganizing the menu as
being a good idea. But it would be even better reorganizing it along
the lines suse did in its newest gnome release. That is really classy.
