Thanks to everyone who has voted on the initial vote!
It has helped me a lot already to rule out a number of variations. It also showed clearly that the old logo is not popular at all and that manual kerning is preferred to default letter spaces (I am using the FreeMono font, which is monospaced so this is not too much of a surpise).
There are some other variables I'd like you to decide. There was some discussion about the flash outline already so I will create at least two sets of icons for that later. Maybe I'll try different fonts too, but I'd like to use a very common one and I think the FreeMono font suites us well... command line tool etc.
Anyway... first I'd like to define the color (scheme) to use. I have created another poll, please vote! http://epicdecide.com/3dc56f58-59f9-4921-b048-4cb89b48a09b/
If we go for one of the yellow schemes, an alternative for the icon would be to make it completely yellow without colored outlines like so: http://buildbot.flashrom.org/poll-colors/yellow_icon.png What do you think?
