Nice adjustment to the logo, John!

Thanks

Thanks. I thought it would be a nice touch to commemorate yesterday.

Gord I guess still drinking coffee and missed the effects, John any chance of making it like that in Platform.

Frankly it looks like someone

Frankly it looks like someone scavenged it from the Geocities of the nineties. Is this going to be permanent? I don't mind it that much on the website but in the launcher it would clash with the rest operating system.

(Just went to download something today, noticed the rather anachronistic logo and went to search about it on the forums. I found a thread and see other people praised it. Have people changed their taste in aesthetics overnight? What is going on?)

Supreme Court of the United States ruling

It is in recognition of the recent ruling on same-sex marriage by the Supreme Court of the United States: http://nytimes.com/2015/06/27/us/supreme-court-same-sex-marriage.html

Oh. I see. And what does that

Oh. I see. And what does that have to do with portable apps?

Nothing

It has absolutely nothing do with portable apps, or PortableApps.com.

With that said:

  • PortableApps.com is based in the United States, and
  • The founder of the site, John T. Haller, along with other users of the site, support the ruling. See John's comment above.

Just The Site

It was for the site to commemorate the ruling as reddit, IMGUR, and many other tech sites did on the web and social media: http://www.inc.com/marli-guzzetta/companies-gay-marriage.html

I think it would clash a bit in the platform and we generally only commemorate specific traditional non-nation-specific holidays in the platform's UI itself with the small PortableApps.com circle mod (heart for Valentine's day, fireworks for New Year's, etc).
