Hi everyone. New NeoOffice user here, am immensely happy with the program, congratulations. And thanks!
The icon in all honesty doesn't do the software justice. It's not even a bad drawing, it just doesn't work as an icon. If you're going to stick with it just because it won an "award", you're being a little close-minded there. As NeoOffice becomes more and more widely used, perhaps it would be a good idea to start accepting new ideas. Just saying.
I think there have been perhaps at the most a dozen posts over the last few years from people who don't like the icon, and that's out of hundreds of thousands of downloads of the software (if we're not up to millions now).
This leads me to conclude that the few people who write in saying "Your icon is a bad icon, sirs" are actually saying "I don't like the icon, therefore it's a bad icon".
So I'm writing in to say (again) "I love the icon, therefore it's a good one" . Seriously, I sit it next to the other round stuff in the dock (e.g. Time Machine) and it looks great. In my opinion.
I've never understood the tendency by companies and software programs to completely throw away the years of brand recognition they've built up in their logos by completely redoing them.
For better or for worse (and in my opinion, it's definitely for better), the ship exploring uncharted territory has been the symbol of the NeoOffice "brand" since its inception.
(Also, since it has been our symbol for so long, and so many of us do like it so much, our reactions in this thread probably seem very hostile; consider, for instance, if someone came up to you and said that you should no longer go by your own name because it didn't match that person's perception of who you are.)
