Well the cauldron logo is so simple that it is barely distinguishable
from a circle. What we need is a distinctive logo that is easily
Even if the cauldron is recognised as such, what is the image usually
associated with a cauldron, at least in Europe and North America ?
Witchcraft. Thus magic.
So of course, potential users will be attracted by an operating system
"with the right incantations, Mageia *should* work."
Somehow, I don't think so.
Don't forget, we must put ourselves in the shoes of those who might be
attacted to Mageia, not in the shoes of developers who are already
my 2 cents :)
