I like the rightmost one of the original logo proposals best. The map in the
background and the text around look really good. I wonder, if we could use a
real picture of Europe from a satellite, similar to the ones on the xplanet
home page (http://xplanet.sourceforge.net/) instead of the single color map.
And yes, since it is no logo anymore, the gnu and Europa could include more
details. But it might well be too, that the more simpler version actually
looks better.


PS: Which free software program will you use, to create the vector version
    of it? Guess, you're not going to edit a postscript file by hand as I
    usually do it. :-(
