I can see your point now :-). G can be almost interpreted as a Q. You are
IMHO also right about making penguin a taller than the text. I do prefer the
ground line better as it provides some sense of ground and links the logo
with the text better.

With all that being said, I personally prefer the 3rd from the top which has
G adjusted and the penguin is taller than the text. Perhaps fixing the top
part of A in linuxAudio.org so that it does not look like it's sagging down,
but rather running in parallel with the "belly" of the letter "a" could
possibly fix that.

Letters in versions below the aforesaid third seem to be too spaced out and
the text seems IMHO more ordinary.

I think you are also right about this as well. How about placing waves
completely out of the penguin's mouth?

FWIW, I've attached my ugly hack-visualization that addresses the soundwaves
and the letter "A" concerns.

Best wishes,
