As long as Guix and GuixSD are not synonymous, I would argue that mixing
the two logos increases confusion, whether it looks pretty or not.
Especially since the logos include their name.

If the choice of using GuixSD logo when designing Guix is about
esthetics, maybe we could use the same symbol for both logos.  Maybe
with a slightly different color that would help distinguish them?

What do people think?
