my preference goes to r3v3 or alternatively r3v2
i'd prefer r3v3, too.
i prefer r1v8.
a logo should be simple as posible.
I like r3v3. Nice style. But i would recommand changing the font to a sans serif font to make it look more modern and more WEB 2.0.
One risk is that r3v3 will be interpreted as eclipse.org sub-brand (looks a bit like an eclipse to me).
R1V8 looks a bit too generic. This type of representation (circle of circle) is usualy used as a loading for many type of AJAX websites. (appears 4 times in : http://images.google.com/images?q=loading%20ajax)
I prefer r1v8 for the same reason of thomas.
why not use the same color of jboss for those little balls?
The best from these three options is obviously:
Rich Guy Face col #1 or #6 .
(however, a better stronger dark blue nuance would be finer!)
The only thing, I have to say is, that I do not like the 'overwhelming' upon.
The guy should looks a little bit friendly but honest, such a 'face is rich' :-)
Don't you think so?
