Corkscrew ... It shows the Wine connection, and emphasizes "openness".

Hey, that's something new.
It also emphasise that it was done because the main win32 development was "screwed" from lack of developers. :lol:

I kind of like that one. I definitely like the logo for it.
The name might not fit logically though. What is that thing called, in the logo?

That thing in the logo is called a 'vise'...so the name could not be more cleverly fitting of the logo.

Well usually in the computer world everything doesn't need to be spelled the same way if an other meaning is applied.
The thought was that a "Vise" or a "Vice" is a tool for holding things into place, also a forcing tool and a prefix as to second in charge.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_a ... ifferences
cut from wikipedia.

Vise, Vice:
The two-jawed workbench tool. Americans and Canadians retain the very old distinction between vise (the tool) and vice (the sin, and also the Latin prefix meaning a "deputy"), both of which are vice in the UK and Australia.[159] Thus, Americans have Vice-Admiral, Vice-President, and Vice-Principal, but never "Vise-" for any one of these.

But the acronym might be a bit off so feel free to find an better.

Hi everybody.

I want to share the logo that I think could fit better for ARWINSS (or the chosen name for the before-known-as-ARWINSS). It is only a fast concept that mix the REACTOS + WINE logos in one:

I hope you like it.

Ok guys just found this thread, how bout - Tawny Port, or just Tawny. For those who enjoy a nice port wine, this is a popular barrel-aged option.

Another type is Ruby Port, but this would have obviousy name confusion with the ruby language ;)
