1. Microsoft
2. Linux
3. Apple Mac OS
4. ReactOS (a sort of windows distribution, a free windows clone visit http://ReactOS.org for more information)
5. BSD or freeBSD (mostly used for servers)
6. Solaris from Sun Microsystem (a OS based on UNIX, also used for servers)

Please dont forget which widgetsets lazarus supports and which is no.
Supported widgetsets:
- win32/64 (so Microsoft icon is ok)
- wince (same)
- gtk1 (Linux icon)
- gtk2 (supports Linux and Windows, but last worse)
- carbon (Mac OS X)
- qt (tested at least at windows and linux. dont know if other)
- fpgui (very poor support)

So I dont know if anybody tested lazarus on ReactOS or Solaris. Please dont use that icons on logo. They can confuse users and bring wrong expecations about lazarus abilities. Not every supported by FPC os or platform is supported in Lazarus.

It was already tested on Solaris, and works normally AFAIK.

However, I don't know if including this kind of information in the splash screen is a good idea. Then we would need to update it everytime something changes.

I think the splash screen should be simple and good looking.

Hi,

I agree with sekel.
I am in graphic publicity, it is better a beautiful logo which shines ...

You should have a look at the Compiz Fusion project.

Compiz and The Beryl Project merged and have changed name to Compiz Fusion. To reflect this change they wanted a new logo as well.

If you take a look at this massive thread:
http://forums.opencompositing.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=835

You will see a lot of different ideas and some thought processes about the logo design.

Edit: Also, you might want to take a look at the Tango Desktop Project guidelines

Hi everybody again,
well I came to this ocnclusion.
For the release of Lazarus 1.0 and allits subversions in the future like lazarus 1.1,  1.2,.1.3, ...(1.x) we should use the actual logo, just because somebody worked at it, and it should not be fair to don't even used in the first version.
Then for the future when someday version 2.0 will come, then we can change the logo.

PS JUHL, interesting link :-)

Lazarus is different then most other programs as it's targeted at software developers, and not end users, so having clear icons and a clean interface is much more important then eye-candy.

...


THis is classically flawed thinking. Us Techies want this to be true, but its not. Even designers like impressive looking interfaces, and it influences their decision on what product to use.

I think that Free Pascal  and Lazarus have lots of promise, but attitudes like this too often kill a good thing, and too often such people never realize why.

About a year ago PhilipCopeman opened this thread about the state of Lazarus Project artwork. A big step has been done with the new icons in the IDE, but what about the logo and the icon?  I'd like to ask if there is any chance that the Lazarus icon will change to one of the ones PhilipCopeman pointed (I really like them - and I would like to know if they are copyrighted :)  ) .

Thanks in adnvance, cyber_python.
