Well, I think the icon is pretty good and I really like the jigsaw puzzle
metaphor of it, but the icon itself doesn't really seem to fit really well
with the rest of the Fremantle User Interface. This is mainly due to color
usage of your icon. Also I think the icon is a bit vague since the $_ isn't
clearly visible (at least to me). I took the liberty of mocking up my own
proposal which you can see in action here:
It's simplistic and takes only a small portion of the icon and the the
terminal-look of it is clearly emphasized. I have the SVG source for both
the "badge" version and the "icon version", which is simply the badge with
the standard blue square icon underneath. So if anyone likes it I can
provide the source images. I thought this would preserve the uniform look of
the Application manager.
