Subject Re: Apache Flex logo colors

nice job Fuse (again!^^)
the result is obviously beautiful, but personally I'm a little bit
concerned by the colors choice, not for MS or Google similarities, but
rather by Adobe's one! the gradients are very similar to Adobe Products CS5
splash screens, meaning:
Red: FlashPro, Green: DW, Orange: IL, Bleu: PS

maybe it's just a personal impression but I honestly can't be very
objective on that, since my own logo (here in the signature) is based on
those colors replacing Orange by Purple for After Effects, but the colors
are soooo close! I'm confused!

Regards,
