This is the image for a Ubuntu Linux t-shirt that I'm making. I'mjust learning Gimp, so please keep that in mind. Is the text too much, or should I go with just the logo. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

If you created that from scratch, I think you did a fine job.
I'd keep the text above or preferably below the image instead of an overlay.
It'd be really cool if you could have multiple (non commercial) distros that would appear smaller than just one.
That would make it look more welcoming to Linux without any distro bias.

I'd include Mint Linux, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, and perhaps CentOS, Mageia, Manjaro, OpenSuse and even Arch.
People would also say Red Hat but it always has been a biz distro. Besides Fedora is there so that should be enough.
Now if you mix at least 4-5 different distro logos and then have the penguin in the corner or side, or in the middle with all distros around it, then on top it reads "Don't Fear The Penguin". that would be pretty cool, imho.

Fedora is the upstream for RHEL, and more of a "bleeding edge" distro. CentOS is the free-as-in-beer equivalent of RHEL. You can also get a no-cost RHEL via their developer program

Well, the penguin isn't from scratch, so there is most likely copyrights/trademark issue.

I just grabbed the images from Google Images. Trust me, I can't draw. I can ink and color, but that's it. I don't plan on selling this. It's just something to put on a shirt that I'll wear myself. I've already decided to go with the logo only design. Being that Linux is free and open source, you'd think that the powers that be wouldn't have a problem with it. I'll see if I can make one that has all of the different distros in it.

Thanks, Elina. I'll go ahead put this on a t-shirt for my self. If any one wishes to so, here's the logo sans the text. Feel free to make your own t-shirts, just don't sell them to anyone.

Thank you for the input. Fedora is "bleeding edge" per se because the most stable updates/revisions get pushed onto Fedora Core first then onto Red Hat.

Since Red Hat is mainly a -supported- business distro, they are using Fedora as a validation distro to be safe, which makes it effectively "bleeding edge" in a sense but I am guessing you already knew that.
