Adding Logos in AboutSystem

The original BeOS AboutSystem application included logos for some of the technology partners, as seen here:

I think visual cues (logos) for companies send a very strong message and they're easier to spot than text. I do think BeOS go this right, and maybe Haiku could consider this. A lot of companies can be instantly recognized by their logo. Probably be a lot of work, and possibly permission from the projects; but I believe it'd be well worth it, and would help!

Things and people we could consider including (this is what's already in AboutSystem and also has a logo we could use):

  • Google (credited for GSoC and GCI)
  • Auckland university for the work on UI/UX
  • BeOS logo
  • GNU
  • FreeBSD
  • AGG
  • Xfree86
  • bzip2
  • ffmpeg
  • info-zip
  • intel
  • thttpd
  • matroska
  • libpng
  • Marvell semiconductor
  • Mesa
  • Industrial Light and Magic (for OpenEXR)
  • Ralink Technology
  • zlib

Probably we should also add musl there (text and maybe someday logo)
