I don't think so. For one, (not that this counts ;) ) my favorites are the
logos 20 43 and 39 (38 not so much)

All of them could improve a bit, e.g. #20 should be recolored, take a real
blue instead of the "baby blue" , strong bordeaux red instead of "dirty
pink" and have a bit more contrast in the white parts.
In #43 the dots in "::" should be round, that would be more appealing.

It would be also possible to change #43 to read "boost<c++>" (like #25)
Because "boost<c++>" IMHO tells every c++ programmer exactly what boost does
(even how it does it.) Further it would work in Text only browsers, too and
it could be reused for other language bindings, e.g. "boost<phyton>"

What I like about either "::", "++" and "< >" is that one imediately thinks
of c++.
