(i.e. one color printing) Ubuntu is very minimalistic, yet it says something. Ubuntu means community, and the logo is supposed to be three people holding hands. What I think is nice about it is how it lends itself to modification for the other Ubuntu based distros.
I can appreciate the versatility of the logo but rather than 3 people holding hands, it always looks like 3 people in a call centre to me!

Apple's logo is a design classic with its reference to the supposed suicide of Alan Turing by virtue of eating a cyanide laced apple.
