No way am I going to adjust the "screen" color of my calibrated and profiled monitor!  I hope you are just joking.

No.

My laptop is likely quite typical of the "average" user's screen.  I'm not going to make adjustments for Adobe's logo!  and furthermore it IS orange-ish!  Look at the logo and then further down for Adobe Air's logo.  Definite difference.  Even on my lowly, uncalibrated monitor.

Pardon me for asking this, Phillip:  Do you have the slightest idea how to calibrate and profile a monitor?

I agree completely.

The odd part is that this is the inverse of the Adobe logo that is present in the Admin icons.  That is much more pleasing, with a white background and red triangles.  Almost like someone does not know how to use PhotoShop and hit the inverse button by mistake.

depends upon how much of the yellow is put in the Red. That just like Burgandy which is a Dark Red has a touch of blue in it.

Exactly! And the shade of red is too!  If I were my brother wouldn't make any difference he is color bling and don't know the difference between red and green, he's color blind for red and green.
