    Change the site style to "Experimental" to see the new logo in place. I'll do a bit more tweaking, but that's the gist of it.

    I think I'd like it if the M were lowercase... it seems out of place to me.

    i'd agree about the lowercase "m"
    the µ looks great!

    Yeah, i'll have to agree with Streetshooter.

    The logo reminds me of uTorrent. But in blue.

    Wow, I had never seen the uTorrent logo before. It does look similar!

    Well, I don't think they can trademark the letter "µ" in a square, and it's not like we're competing in the same business, so we should be safe with the new logo. I changed the circle to a square so we could use the same design for a future phone app.

    While the new header is very beautiful it is much larger and that seems to be bucking the µ43 trend.:doh:

    A little Overwhelming

    Hi Amin,

    The "u" is a little overwhelming for my eyes. I don't mind they "style", perhaps a more subdued version would suit my taste.

    We'll keep the old style available for anyone who prefers it when the new logo becomes the default.

    I expect we'll have one or two more logo changes before we're ready to make t-shirts :biggrin:.

    The final version will probably be about 70% of this size, making it actually a bit smaller than the old logo.
