Modified elementary logo by Dolsilwa Modified elementary logo by Dolsilwa
There is a new logo for elementary os and i thought that "e" is a bit too high. So i've made this little comparison of how it look now and how i think it should look in my opinion.

And i can't wait for elementary Luna to be released :-)

I'm sure many will see this as nit-picking but I seriously like the "modified" version.

Ian Hex did this due to scaling reasons. He wasn't more precise though.

Hmm... it's odd that scaling is bigger priority than look, but on the other hand logo is not the most important thing in eOS :-) Thank you for comment.

You are welcome. If you are interested in more info, you could get in touch with Ian Hex personally on Google Plus.
Now to get a bit more off topic: have you ever tried Trastes' themes? [link]

Nah, i have faith in elementary team, they know what they do :-) And after this few weeks, i have get used to new logo.

And about Trastes's themes: yup, i used adwaita cupertino for a long time, and greenday for a while. Very good themes in my opinion. But Gnome 3 and it's apps desperately tries to be "different" - different than Mac OS, different than Windows. It's apps are designed in weird way (nautilus for example - this design is good for touch screen). And there are things that are step down from gnome 2 - like gnome-classic panel and it's lack of proper transparency. So even with great themes like adwaita cupertino, i can't get that mac-ish look with gnome 3.

That's why i like elementary apps, and their design - consistent and "for desktops" not "for tablets". The only thing i don't like in pantheon is lack of global menu - the only thing that makes me keeping gnome-classic session.

Sorry this post is so chaotic ;-)

Sorry for the late reply.

I don't get all the hate on Nautilus 3. Using the elementary theme, it looks like rubbish, because they optimize it for Marlin and give a flying damn about Nautilus. But with Cupertino Adwaita it looks really sexy. And strange that you don't get a macish look with Gnome 3. I have Adwaita Cupertino, Plank and the EOS Gnome Shell theme running and although it might not look that much like Mac, it looks extremely elegant.

Yeah, global menu; I miss this on my Gnome 3 session too. Not everything's bad about unity. Well actually Unity has become pretty great sind 12.04. Yet there are some features that Gnome 3 offers that I don't want to be missing.
