i'm against using no logo. either we use the linux 2.0 penguin or our 
official logo. 

how did you test it, what did you try? what was wrong besides wrong 
proportions (that can be fixed specifying the right size of screen to 
the fb)? if you need some help transforming the logo to look nice, 
let me know,
