I look at the Nike logo and see a tick. That's all the thought I gave to it.

I looked at the proposed Fedora logo, and saw a Möbius strip, with white
and light blue, then wondered why it had two colours, then saw the "f",
then wondered why the rest of the strip was light blue, then wondered why
there is a Möbius strip at all, then wondered why fedora legacy had green,
then wondered what the light blue meant if legacy meant green.
