I agree with part of this opinion. A simple poll directed to the SW 
community would have been nice. Still, I can´t avoid finding some sense 
on this new logo. Semantically speaking (notice no "web" in there), I 
agree it´s a good representation. It could work if the restrictions 
weren´t so harsh.
