Well, someone axed why we don't gots one, so done drawed one.
It's not a really catchy logo; it's rather simple, in fact, but then, linux
is actually like that. It doesn't hit you between the eyes with bells and
whistles: it just sort of sneaks up on you, and stuns you with its..its..
come on, guys, what's the word I'm looking for here? 
Anyhow, it's a fairly large PostScript file (200+KB tarred and compressed)
so I imagine it would be a bad idea to post it. ;-)
Basically, it's an equilateral triangle (pointing downward) with a gradient
fill (linear fill; from blue at the bottom to white at the top). About halfway
down the  triangle is a 10pt. red line, with LINUX written above it in
Oblique Times font. The L is 72-point; the INUX is 48-point, and sits back
inside the L (well, the I and half of the N do). The L is a drop-cap, with
the base of the L below the line (the INUX is, as mentioned before, above
the line), and, even with the base of the L is RELEASE 0.97 (also in
Oblique Times, but all in 18 point pitch). Obviously, the 0.97 changes
with the release...
My description doesn't explain it very well; you really need to see it to
understand what I'm talking about. So I'll put it on tsx-11 (if Ted'll let
me...) ASAP (probably tomorrow (Wednesday)).
Comments are welcome; criticism...well, be nice... :-)

Well, it's not _quite_ Wednesday here, but I managed to get the thing
uploaded to tsx-11. Download it, print it out, tell me what you think.
BTW- The logo is in PostScript format, and is in the file linlogPS.tar.Z
but I don't know for certain where it will wind up on tsx-11.

Well, I've made it available as ~ftp/pub/linux/postscript/linux-1.ps,
and despite having frobbed with it a bit, I can't get it to print.
However, I did manage to get one postscript previewer (out of three that
I tried) to preview it.

Perhaps someone who knows postscript would be willing to redo the logo
in raw postscript, instead of Aldus Freehand?  That would be a lot more
portable, not to mention faster to image.....

	Ghostscript pulled it up fine for me and I like it!  I don't 
like having the Version number in becuase it means we'll have to update
the logo every Saturday :-), but other than that it's cool and I'd
love to see it included in manuals and the such :-).

	Well ghostscript barfs when I try it.  Is there some secret??
I am using gs on a SVr4 machine, since I do not yet have gs on my linux
machine.

	Here is the mess that gs left:
