Thanks for the feedback! :)

We'll be doing a gnome splash either way. This is meant to just be a quick example of one of the many splashes we do just to see an application of the style idea. The KDE splash will necessitate a slightly different design because of the particulars of how those are done.

Yeh, I'm not sure either but I'm leaning more towards the logotype alone as well.

Mixing the four f's into the theme doesn't strike me as being particularly appropriate. Having an alternate theme that uses the four F's would be cool though. I think Clint is working on something like that. (If you're reading, do you have more details Clint?)

They aren't actual banners, they are just design mockups to show a treatment of a Greek motif along with the Fedora logo and colors. Just to kind of give the feel...

Cool :)
