Tux Icon is ugly, so Feature Request: make a better-looking Tux Icon
If you go to the "Linux" section of the Store, you'll see the Windows, Mac and Linux icons together. The Windows and Mac ones are nice, being all white, but the Linux one looks out of place because it's got black and white. I think the Tux Icon should be all white, too, in order to make it look nice alongside the other two. Right now it looks like something out of the early 1990s.

+1. Linux logo doesn't look much professional.

Nah, I'm a millenial. I sit back and ♥♥♥♥♥ about something but expect anybody but me to fix it.

[irony]Yeah! Let's help this open source project, because they are doing this in the spare time, and they don't have any money to contract a designer to do a descent icon! Poor Valve!!![/irony]

I'm actually not a designer myself, so I don't have the skill to do this. But that doesn't make the logo good looking. I could even create one and give to them if I had the knowledge, but I'm pretty sure they would prefer to do themselves.

If they switched to black-on-white (or at least dark-on-light) icons for all three systems, they could use a monochromatic penguin (just a fill color and the background) and it would integrate well with the other two. Not sure how good it would look on a store that has a light-on-dark theme in general, though.

Here's what it looks like:

Maybe someone can write a userscript to replace it?

Wow, that looks awesome next to the other two. Much better than what they have.

♥♥♥♥ing white background in chrome...

On the topic i think it looks good enough for an icon but the shape itself is not a good one for a small icon alongside the Windows and Mac logo

Personnaly I don't find the current Tux icon ugly and it has the advantage of standing-out (useful to quickly determine if anything is available on Linux).


Regarding the all white proposition (http://i.imgur.com/xZXASOa.png) I'd say that it's not immediate (intuitive?) to make out that it's a pinguin when first looking upon it (due to the complexity of the shape). But maybe it's just me.

The current icon looks like something that would have been done in the 80s when compared too and then put beside the Windows and Apple icons being used. The Steam linux icon does not measure up to what is expected for a professional icon representing a brand. It's more of a marketing thing... eye appeal is everything.

The current icon hardly represents Linux at all; to me, this icon is consistent with the others, and immediately looks like the Linux mascot. Maybe you can make one that fits in with the others *and* is appealing to you?
