New Logo

Regarding the new logo, I had trouble figuring out if the red san-serif
"Inferno" is a logo or not. There isn't anything to distinguish it from a
headline or just a simple font, and I think that detracts from its appeal.

One of the things that Sun did well with Java was letting the marketing
folks have some fun with it. The name and spinning cup logo have helped
make it more recognizeable.

I don't know how much impact a logo's going to have, but personally I'm not
jazzed by the red lettered "Inferno". It needs something that sets it apart
from a headline font.
