I like F's lettering with G's logo.  I also like L, as is.  It's for the 
professional looking reasons.  Ken "Helios" Starks wrote something a couple 
of years ago about how he converted a MS Windows-using business to K12LTSP 6 
(the FC6-based one).  I don't believe he had yet learned about EL, otherwise 
he presumably would've used that one (the conversion was a rush job due a BSA 

In addition to the few schools I've done, I once had a small business using 
K12LTSP 4.2EL.  It worked great.  Unfortunately the owner of it decided that 
he just *had* to have Microsoft Exchange Server and that nothing else would 
do...despite the fact that I had him on IMAP/SMTP email that worked great 
with Evolution.  Basically, he let himself get seduced by InfoWorld, et. al.
