 | All three versions of the kernel logo are available here:

hi Thayer,
hi Tobias,
hi all,

i've made the 224 and 16 colour logo file for the kernel26 in colour 
(yours is white, i would say that if we have colours and the logo is 
in colour, we should use them - you agree?) and have tested both. 
they work, Tobias, you can find them here for replacement of the old 
logo in kernel26:


with the mono logo i have serious trouble: i cannot make the new logo 
look nice in 1-bit space, it has edges and slopes that are hard to 
show nicely in 120 x 120 px without aesthetic errors. but as the 
monochrome framebuffer is anyway not built, i would not see this as 
something urgent. 

@Tobias: feel free to replace the old logo by the new one 

have a nice weekend you all,
