I have to admit I did not care for the the logo in the beginning. But as
time has gone on I have either started to like it or just resigned my
self to living with it. I am really not sure which. 

Karsten you asked for example layouts, a few of us from #fedora have
started a project to bring content together under one roof if you will.
We are just getting started but we have our main site up but have yet to
pick a CMS that we want to live with. http://fedoraunity.org/ I pilfered
the header background from the Wiki and modified the final logo to work
on the dark background. Feel free to give us feed back on the site.
