@Adám Was there any sort of verdict? I missed it today. Fwiw, I asked my parents just out of interest, and both of them liked display matrix + parallel lines the most, which was unexpected. Maybe a slightly simplified version of the parallel lines one could be good?
 
@rak1507 I also missed it. Sent my wife, though. She said they did go over the page again, but didn't move forward. They also mentioned me. I guess I have to be there to push things.
Your parents' opinion is indeed interesting. I like the display matrix too, but it doesn't work as-is for an icon, as the lines are too thin. Maybe that could be fixed, though. Maybe I'll do a parallel lines where the lines that are not part of A P L are black. I also thought of adding additional black stripes above and below to make it square…
 
I sort of mentally discarded the parallel lines one because of it being old, but it is pretty cool
also, the ligatures one is by far the best in terms of readability at a small scale - worth considering?
 
Old is not necessarily bad, and what's new today will be old soon enough. Only IBM's logo doesn't need to change :-)
@rak1507 What bothers me about both parallel lines and ligatures is that there's nothing APL'y or pun'y or apple'y about them at all.
 
true, but you can't win them all...
