New Webmin Logos Fight to the Death!

Howdy all,

Webmin, the much beloved core of Virtualmin and VM2, will be ten years old on October 3rd (they grow up so fast!), and to celebrate, we’re giving it a new logo. The current spider web logo has served its purpose well, but the time has come for a facelift to match Webmin’s new GUI and stature as the world’s most popular web-based system administration tool (downloads from sf.net are a hair shy of 9 million!).

Here’s the announcement at the new Webmin blog (what? Webmin has a blog? yep…we’ll announce that soon, too…cart somehow wound up before the horse, it seems):
