Yep, good reading, but IMHO a logo it's just a logo, though I had 
preferred it to be more refined or cool too. But I think there is room 
for 3D improvements maybe. At the first sight such logo appeared to me 
as a "fish". Regarding the comments, the logo is something which should 
immediately represent a product or a brand (even if you don't attach a 
script), that's because called logo. The compass based logo sound cool, 
but IMHO it represent at first sight a well painted compass.

Anyway once you see the logo several times at once you'll soon identify 
it with the product. IMHO this is the power of a logo. A good experiment 
could be: take all the distro logo (e.g. from distrowatch) in random 
order then try to identify to which brand they own...
