Description

It would be good to have a logo to denote "this is not an official build of Haiku, but meets the compatibility requirements". Currently no graphics are displayed when HAIKU_DISTRO_COMPATIBILITY = 'compatible'

After digging through the mailing list archives, according to How-to-proceed-with-the-Haiku-Compatible-logos, it looks like Stephan's 5c, 3c, and 3d were the final selection and became the official 'Haiku Compatible' logos. These images are on Haiku Compatible Logo.

Using those images, I've mocked-up rectangular versions. The font used was Futura LT Medium. The intention with the rectangular versions is to have logos suitable for AboutSystem, Installer, and the boot_splash.

Usually there is more space between letters in our logo, Stephan's Haiku Compatible logos included.

The two bottom ones with Haiku Compatible boxed doesn't look as great as the others. My prefered one is the blue gradient leaf one (third row, first column).

PS: WALTERMARK as watermark text! :-)

Attached a 2nd mockup. The actual glyphs were used and the horizontal bars were added, based on the Futura LT Medium font. The text "COMPATIBLE" is a fuzzy and uses the Futura2-Normal font. It should be converted to shapes and tweaked for better pixel alignment, but I had trouble making the non-straight paths look good.

Also, one of the black background images should probably be used for the boot_splash.

in 'examples-in-use.png', the gradient background was changed to a solid white. For AboutSystem, I simply omitted the leaf as reducing the image by 50% made "COMPATIBLE" extremely small and illegible.
