Guys, I believe that the "Fx" text within a square is the logo for the product "Flex Builder"
which is still Adobe's, not for the FlexSDK :) It looks really good anyway :D

Yeah Rui!

I think you got the idea of the square icon for this concrete design!. I'm
referring to the last one with the only X :)

That's what I love about open source, the collaboration and brainstorming
of ideas! You give a vision that I wouldn't get after trying thinking and
trying various combinations and we can benefit of the work of various
people to achive the best result. So cool! :).

I think it's not possible to get too much of it and I could only try to
vectorize and think a little bit more about it, but that's the essence. The
other experiments (with FX), are good as well, but as I stated before, my
opinion is that we should avoid any resemblance with what Adobe did with
it's brand designs, and Fx has the same "ingredients".

Btw, for the main anagram, I end preferring the nonbroken arc, after talk
with varios people. I tried some other experiments with little bits,
feather and so on... that I've not shared yet here to avoid too much noise.

If you allow me, I'll try to use your square concept this weekend (as I
have a little time to explore and make a formal proposal for the contest.
What do yo think?
