I like the last one best. However, the official capitalization of the
project's name is "NetBSD" so the stylized upper case 'E' isn't quite right.
I wonder if the trident can be incorporated into the 'D' instead, especially
since it is based on a reverse 'D' in any case.
While I am posting anyway, here's a me too vote for keeping the Beastie as the
mascot. I think that we should change the Iwo Jima image to a simple Beastie
on the main page. Perhaps we also need a new contest for main site artwork.
