I like the MX-Start2.png, the blue one, because of the greater contrast on my black background.
My only detraction is that, to my eyes, the image isn't as sharp as the original mxfcelogo-rounded.png. Image
but I do like the contrast with MXStart2.Image
on these admittedly fuzzy shots.

Thanks for your feedback Richard, I hadn't noticed, I will redo it. If you need anything specific just ask! My eyes aren't the best :blindfold:

Thanks.
The Classic Blue does appear sharper on my screen, without losing the overall appearance,
Here is a comparison, such as it is.

Thanks Jerry, just playing at the moment, I have to upload them to the forum from my virtual machine so I can test them in MX.
Trouble is MX has so many themes its hard to do a 'one fits all, So i'll end up doing a few variations of the same and of course requests ;)

Looks very nice. There is an issue on a dark panel where "Linux" fades into the background.
