I wanted to make one just for fun (made in Inkscape, CC-BY SA 4.0):

Thanks looks nice.

We sort of have an un-official new logo.

At least this is what we've been using around at CodeWeavers. We haven't officially pushed it as a new logo for Wine officially, but maybe we should.

Thanks...

I made a second version based on those cheaper Wine bottles, but I'm not sure which one of these looks better (take a vote or something):

Just so you are aware, we could NEVER use a logo with anything that even closely resembles a Microsoft logo. Since your bottle contains a logo similar to Windows, MS would throw a legal hissy fit.

I didn't think they were that (pardon my language) b*t©hy about intellectual property rights.

That's why the logo is posted under Creative Commons I guess, if you have any "loophole" alternatives, I'm very much interested (maybe a Window with "circles" instead, or a Grape with leaves).

But that was just a suggestion anyway. I just did it for fun. Feel free to mess around with it as you please.

But any ways, I have another proposition:

A new site background

Saw the old one, didn't like it that much, decided to remake it in a flash.
