Apple products on KDE splash?

Postby thespongeoflove » Fri Mar 16, 2007 23:53

Why are there apple products in the KDE splash screen? It looks silly and does not match all other logos used in the 3.3 theme.

Am i the only one who feels this way about apple products tainting the otherwise clean and professional look of Sabayon?

The icons may look clean, but they are macs!

Don't worry it is not a huge problem. If it bugs me that much i will just change the splash screen. If i modify the splash to include icons that I think are cool I will be sure to post it with instructions on how to change it.

Is it legal to use Apple logos?

it's on the very first icon in the KDE startup sequence. It looks like an iMac and if you look closely, there's a wee apple just below the screen.

Aesthetically it's no problem for me. I think the icon set looks cool (now if there were a wee Windows flag flapping in the breeze instead that would be a problem :wink:). I just don't want anyone to get in trouble. I'm certainly no lawyer, but I would guess that there's probably some kind of copyright concerns involved.
