I would suggest to trim any text to the shortest possible length
anyway. In the given example I was thinking of "Sophisticated web
applications in Smalltalk"

Again, I thank you very much of proposing this design. The complaints
of people not proposing a design (or part of a design) count less ;-)

What is the logo today? Currently there are different images on
seaside.st, I don't know which one is the logo. Of course that's a
personal taste, but to me the current logo looks flat, pale and
old-ish. I even stopped to use it in my presentations.
I prefer to have strong colors, bold text, simple shapes and
minimalist design. I like the outline of the seastar, but not the
shading and the color.

I think so, we need some space for the editor and the commands, if we use Pier.

Yeah, I like both designs.

Professional, simple, web 2.0, ...
Samuel, did you do the design for www.simplebits.com? I think
something like that could work very well. Different logo (just the
shape of the seastar), different color scheme, maybe something
different for the tabs (I don't find them really cool on this site),
simple, plain, ...

I don't quite understand how this is supposed to work. Could anybody
build a quick mockup of this?
