Sun's logo is pretty neat, but I think that Microsoft's is a bit boring
(it does perfectly reflect Microsoft's products, tho...boring but
unquestionably there).

Personally, I can't call any animal that licks itself for a bath really
"clean" ;-)  I don't know about cuddly, either.  Many cats I've known have
been a bit less than cuddly :-(

logo instead, then, perhaps a big network of computers from different
