Like Colin said, there are a lot of ways to do this, but I'm trying to learn more ways to do the same things.

If I understand correctly, deleting should leave transparency everywhere that was the background colour. Cropping would cut the whole image down to the size of the remaining selection - the logo. Is it about the same result as the other method or is there an advantage in some cases? I'm just firing up the Gimp to see what I see...

There are probably various ways to do this, but one way would be to use the
the "select regions by color" tool (ctrl-o) . Select the background color
and then just delete it.

i would make the selection like this, but then i would Select-->Invert
and then Image-->Crop.  this little shortcut in the menu will make the
croptool snap to the selection.
