My vote: B

downward. The whitespace in the A ligature isn't as balanced as in the B
ligature as well.

If anybody wants to be pointed to the differences, please have a look at
Joey's userpage in the wiki (I won't provide the link here, but you'll find

For me it is much more important to compare the general impression rather
than the tiny modifications.

So I ask you to vote on this comparison:

Which logo is more balanced and expresses better the feelings we want to be
associated with LibreOffice?

And if you prefer the present logo: Should we include the other
modifications except the "ffi" in the old logo?

Best regards


PS: I don't vote now, because some people might look at the image already
with my voting in mind which might influence their decision...
