Yes, that's pretty much exactly what I'm asking for, but perhaps without 
the "9". And available in horizontal as well as vertically-stacked versions.

Yeah, I'm hoping we can make "official" word-mark versions, too. 
Whatever "official" means in this context?

While I would love to see your work on the logo itself proceed, in this 
particular case I'm limiting myself to just the one request, because 
people are asking me for a "CentOS Stream logo" several times every 
week. And, hopefully, this kind of a wordmark variant wouldn't have to 
go through the whole trademark/legal process.
