For your amusement, then, here are some very early stage concept sketches.  (I included
a couple of random ones like the "tree-nity" logo from the batch I did ~4 years ago and
the spiral-T just to give some variety to the set.)  I didn't bother with colour/gradient/fancy
outline tricks at this point because I'm not inclined to put that much work into something
we end up not moving forward with.

Basic design criteria included incorporating some idea of "three-ness" (or "T-ness" in
a couple of cases), and not looking too much like anyone else's logo that I know of.  
Which is why the one that looks most like Trisquel Linux's has that triangle added.  
Logos too similar = potential trademark infringement.
