A Logo Should:

1. Match whatever it represents.

2. Look good at any scale/level of detail.

3. Be just as effective in black and white.

4. Use as few colors as possible (ties in with the above).

5. Match with anything it's placed with.

Your logo is nice, but it doesn't really fit any of those. I can't really look at it without thinking "Lololol blue ballz"

Is that what you want to be everyone's first impression of ROS?

Looks fairly cool to me but I do think the blue balls are over-emphasized. they should be smaller and not as bright as to increase the focus on the point of the reaction(where maybe a slightly more colorful effect could be used though the current seems like a good start). Also I agree with Aape that the level of detail could be a problem. I had a hard enough time just making one atom fit in a 16X16 while keeping it's features noticeable and not looking like a dot on my screen(my screen resolution is 1440X900).

Interestingly, the official ReactOS breaks many of these rules. :P

its hard to make an effective logo that works on all those conditions in the shape of a molecule/atom, with out resorting to cheap knock offs of bio-radiation hazzard............. WAIIIIIIT A SECOND!!!

...which is why I ask that you reconsider with my spider-from-the-orange-lagoon take on the logo. XD

Maybe I'm a bit biased, but I like this one the best:

I've found the logo for nuclear fusion. If you don't know what nuclear fusion is, I suggest you do some research; it could be the answer to human kind's energy needs in the long term. Therefore it symbolizes hope, future and innovation. Perhaps that logo could be used as basis for ReactOS. I don't know where it came from or what copyrights it is under.

theres a couple of others, but those are the better ones.
As desktop wallpapers, I like these.
I like the actual logo itself as it is, but the modified version works well in these designs.

Also, in its present stage, it can't be run for longer than a few minutes/seconds before it destroys the walls of its reactor.

Wow, that was a very smooth segue.
