with the release of Logos 5.0a, the also have a new Logos icon. To be honest, I strongly prefer the old one. This one looks older and it seems to have less pixels. 

I like the idea of a new icon, but not this one

I agree. It feels like change for change's sake..

The new Logos 5 icon.

Yes, this has been commented on in several threads concerning L5. I think it could be a pretty nice icon with some touch-up and devoted time. It appears as though they have taken the old L4 icon, and just removed a layer or colored a layer white. If Logos will just reverse the colors of the original without changing resolution or size, it just may be pretty good.

Depending on your platform, you can use a custom icon of your preference. I've made some in the past and it's really not that hard to substitute an alternative icon including the old L4 icon.

I agree. Actually, Logos has an alternative right in the same directory as the new one, however, don't consider it. Smile

I, myself, may play around with the original a little and completely reverse the colors, but it is much better to have an actual Logos accepted icon.

I too prefer the old one.

EDIT:  Incidentally, I just notice they are still using the old L4 logo on their Twitter account. Shh! Nobody tell them.

I have the old icon pinned to the taskbar. It still functions as it should. However the icon in the start menu is the new flavor.

That didn't work. I'll have to get the images the long drawn out way.

They are actually "shortcuts" (pointers to an application) as opposed to the icon for the application itself.

On my taskbar I have the icon shown below:

The "whiter" icon appears in other places as well!

The old L4 icon for the PC was much better, but the new one has potential. The Mac one does look much better than both PC icons (L4 and L5). This probably has a lot to do with the Mac's roots (designed for graphics). Smile

what about this icon?

2 Peter 3:18  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

These are much better depictions of the true PC icons. I had problems with obtaining them using the snippet tool.

Why would the shortcut be any different than the icon for the application?
