FreeBSD has announced the winner of the FreeBSD logo design competition — Anton K. Gural. Here is the new FreeBSD logo.
And, his original submission.
Here is the previous FreeBSD logo, the red daemon.
My two cents
The new logo is cool. I like the glassy look. The new FreeBSD logo looks more professional and stylish.
The previous logo is cute. I used to have a small red demon toy when I was a kid. I never knew it was the FreeBSD daemon until I learned about the FreeBSD many years later.
I think many girls like the red daemon too. One of my friend is using the FreeBSD daemon as her instant messenger avatar. I doubt she knows what it is.
