It's not like the logo font would be well established. Would be silly 
to try with a freeware font, anyway. The a and g should make anyone 
with an eye for typography cringe. You have to consider what the 
font communicates. This one says linuxaudio.org is an unfinished hack, 
imo, which might even be true now, but will not stay that way ;)
I like the friendly round dots and narrowness, though.

Sure. One after the other ;)

Tried same height, dont' like it. But the ground-thing is a nice idea:


For small sizes, the penguin might actualy be better off without the 
"soundwaves", but let's concentrate on the font, first.
