Kel,is it possible to make an addon that will change the Windows logo icon on the start button to a Tux (Linux),MacOS or any other icon you wish?

I need this kind of thing soo much :)

Why is this Start Button Renamer tool not working correctly?
This is not a fault of the pack,but a bug in the app itself.
When I use it on a XPSP2 install with a Windows Classic theme and when I rename the "Start" button to anything else:
- The Start button becomes very large (4x bigger) and the text off-center,and the system tray icons are "chopped off".
- When resizing the taskbar bigger and then resizing back to the default width,the renamed Start button goes back to being "Start" again and everything goes back as it was before.
It's kind of lame to see the change isn't more "permanent" as I wanted :(

So,these 2 bugs make this "toy" useless for now.

Just for fun,I wanted to put a penguin instead of the windows logo and rename it Lindows,and use a Linux KDE theme :)
But it's not possible now...shame :(

If that's the same one they showed on TechTv a while back, it's always been buggy, which I never cared much to rename my start button anyways, but still...

Just to clear this up, this doesn't work on any themes except classic. You have to mod the theme to change the start btn.
That's how it is for me.
