I agree about 'c' and 'n'.  And I agree with Henry that I'd like to see how it 
looks with the 'inux' in lowercase.  I do not like the fading from light top to 
dark bottom; I find it hard on the eyes and it makes me wonder if my screen is 
tilted wrong; it also tends to not look so good when printed on a black & white 
printer.  I do like the silhouette of an adult (teacher) and two children 
(students), as I think it is also suggestive of the architecture of a 'large' 
server and 'smaller' thin clients (perhaps some sort of illusion could be worked 
up where it could appear to be either people or computers depending on how one 
looks at it).  I also vote for 'K12Linux Terminal Server F9/EL6/etc.'
