Hi David.

First of all, thanks for all the years you have dedicated to create icons and beautiful things for the platform.

I have a request for you. I like a lot to have an icon on the XCenter to minimize all open windows on the desktop at once. I use the "HBShowDesktop" widget.

But I don't like the icon, since it is "too Windowsish"... reminds me to Win98 I guess.

Do you have a suggestion between the icons that you have created to replace it?

Regards

Hi Martin,

Here is one idea I had.  It is based on one of the minimize folder icons.

I took the ArcaOS logo and added 5.1 to it. 

Copy to your OS2/Bitmap directory.
Go to     desktop > background > color only    and select a background color you want
Then unselect the Color Only and choose the logo.  It is a PNG, PNGs work for backgrond.

NOTE:  ArcaOS PNG backgrounds do not recognize transparencies .  Black is the best background color for this PNG logo.

Added 5.1 to the ArcaOS backgrounds

Just download the PNGs file name and copy to your OS2\Bitmap directory.

Go to your

desktop > background     and choose the one you want.

I am still getting organised -- new machine, new AOS-5.1 copy &c -- so could have missed an existing set of the icons I have in mind, but how about some representing operating systems back to CP/M?

CP/M : interlocking chiselled-stone gear wheels with a flint axe leaning against them.
DOS : an ox cart loaded with jumbled letters & digits, towed by bullocks.
UNIX : stacked USian phone books (inc. a C manual) topped by an old button-dialler phone (courteous AT&T reference).
Linux : not sure -- try a parody of UNIX, a heap of paperwork with varied designs of phone & computer having a slightly homebrew look.
OS/2 : (proving we can take jokes as well as dish 'em out) old OS/2 logo backed by a radiant rising sun.
Windows -- abandoned versions : a garish multicoloured Windows logo, one numbered pane broken.
Windows -- current : blue (?) Windows logo fronted by a cowpat/cowflop with a version number on it.  (Okay, getting a wee bit political there...)
eCS : the basic eComStation logo.
AOS : today's logo, possibly without version number.
Other OSes (Mac, Beos, &c) : have fun being inventive.

Hi Andrew

Some of what you desire can be found on line. I do not really have any interest in this.  What little I do is to add a little variety to ArcaOS. I am no expert designer and am self taught.  I takes time which I would prefer using on the operating system IZ use.

https://logos.fandom.com/wiki/OS/2

https://logos.fandom.com/wiki/Microsoft_Windows

https://logos.fandom.com/wiki/Linux

The eCS logos can be found on line.

https://www.google.com/search?client=opera&sca_esv=569882038&q=ecomstation&tbm=isch&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjYmIunwdWBAxV8g2oFHQ_MClwQ0pQJegQIDBAB&biw=1263&bih=581&dpr=1

ArcaOS backgrounds come with the system.

A 5.1 boot logo and a new logo.

See page 19 for 5.1 backgrounds.

Hi, David.  Thanks for gracing my bout of silliness with a serious reply.   :)  Following your URLs, one sees the subject has indeed been well kicked about, perhaps more than it merits.  The only logos I ever improvised for my eCS system were simple things, like a WordStar one which I probably must enlarge when my AOS system is working; but at least we're only talking about a star on a plain b/g.  Simple is good with logos, methinks.

Thrive.

I modified some old  OS/2 Warp boot logos from Jon Czerwinski
(jon_czerwinski@ccmail.ntrs.com)
to ArcaOS logos.

Rename to OS2logo and copy to your ArcoOS root directory.  I got the ideal to do this from Andrew,

Thanks David for the Boot logos. I want to group them to upload them to hobbes.
I grouped some here: Boot_Logos_Vol-1.zip

Just a question, since I haven't check it yet. In ArcaOS 5.1.0, with UEFI mode, now the boot logo can be a high resolution logo. Which format and resolution is supported? what filename should be changed?

Regards
