I was thinking about


That looks a bit like a “text, but better” (without BB :P), just  
like C++ is C, but incremented.

Of course, it's a bit visually unbalanced. But still better in my  
mind than “textmate”, plain and simple.

I'd say :
“textmate” pros :
- the T-shirt has the product name on it, so every one has at least a  
slight idea of what it is about
- visually balanced (I like the bold text/not bold mate)

“textmate” cons :
- it probably won't trigger anything other people (even geeks). No  
surprise, no question, no nothing. Actually, I find it  little boring.

“text⇥” pros :
- shows a feature of our favorite editor
- can catch the geek (well, isn't a vast majority of the mate users  
geeks?) attention and curiosity. Every single one must know about tab  

“text⇥” cons :
- other people probably won't be attracted, and it doesn't contain  
the app name, thus making it hard to discover TM
- visually unbalanced


Well, I wouldn't wear the first one, but it seems to be popular, so  
I'm afraid I'l have to wear something else. Still, for the color, I'd  
prefer a entirely purple one. While I'm at it, is it possible to get  
a drawing as complex as the TM icon on a T-shirt? At least, without  
making it awfully expensive? Perhaps we should mind the possibility  
of purple (not black) and white or at least avoid gradation.
