Logo change

Post by MartinR » 2019/11/27 10:56:52

The latest CentOS blog includes the minutes of the Board of Directors. There appears to be work underway to change the logo for CentOS in order to "modernise" it. RH designers are proposing solutions to "problems" with the logo. Does the logo need change and should we as a community be monitoring the board?

I've looked at the proposed logos and have a couple of comments:
Idea 1: "Stream", "Linux 7" and "Linux 8" should be centered below "CentOS".
Idea 3: Only use the "north-east" arrow, the others could be interpreted as
backwards or downwards. Use different colours for Stream, Linux 7, etc.

I find it amusing this is being discussed at all, but thought I'd throw this comment out there:
Has anyone else noticed that the 8 arrow arrangement CentOS uses is a pseudo-religious symbol used to represent Chaos? See the Wikipedia article for more info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbol_of_Chaos

I find it amusing that CentOS uses it. Not sure if that was ever intentional, but it makes me chuckle a little every time I think about it. Personally I would stick with it; "Order out of Chaos" and all that.

Cheers!

CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

I think the logo looks quite modern. Changing the logo on the system is unlikely to affect. IMHO
Don't worry be happy ;)
