that's understandable. i think the designer succeeded, too. he does manage to
look both dumb/emotionless and happy.
even so, i don't particularly care for him. he's a little too stiff. i liked
that the "gaim guy" was simpler and streamlined, and felt more bright and
energetic. i'm not violently opposed, but i would vote for another draft.
(incidentally, i like the text's cleverness too, but at first glance, i found
it hard to read. the cleverness will probably be lost on the majority of
users, so it might not be the best design criteria.)
