Re: Art ideas for Fedora 11 (grub, boot, splashes, window decorations, button styles etc...)

Very interesting ideas. Since Leonidas is a ancient Greek name and a
name of a ship, we could use a trireme [1] or something similar (more
artistic, less combat). Basically, I imagine a trireme-like, or even an
ancient fish-boat (with or without the Fedora logo on its sail :P)
sailing on a sea of stars (with splashes on its front). I guess it can
be combined with the golden ratio , math etc.

Now, some other points. Sea from an other point of view doesn't separate
land, it unites land. No mountains, trees, obstacles, etc, just water
and the human ingenuity.

I think the "Olympic spirit" concept is something completely different
than the "sea - ship - golden ratio" one.
