I don't see any such logical connection.

Lisi and I don't. We're probably not the only two.

Has someone proven this somehow?

No. 14 branched over a year ago, as if branching was even relevant in logo

KDE needs to cut its associations with KDE. TDE doesn't. TDE is what KDE was 
at its best, and a bit more. The current KDE is an abomination, nothing like 
what it was when TDE forked. It's a frequent crasher, memory hog, and time 
waster. Many good features were lost in the scratch rewrites since forking. 
And even though the project remains KDE and the web site remains, its 
focus centers on Plasma, and with it the connotation of change, 
contra-stability, even change for change's sake.

> I personally do not care what logo it has.

Then why so much input from you advocating a change?

Voting is fine, as long as you're able to get the silent and content majority 
unsilenced. A vote here on devel would be anything but fair, unless fair 
means only the vociferous count.
