Anyone know of a good image of the Boot Camp Logo (looks like a windows logo except grey) I'd love to turn that into the desktop background of the windows session i have installed on my mac mini. just a thought. Thanks!

I know this isn't helpful, but I just think the black and white Aqua Windows logo actually looks better than the real thing :p

Me too - and I found the whole thing really funny. I could just imagine the Apple guys saying "Oh, we know how to boot Windows now, but I can't bear to put that horrid logo on our stuff." "Shall we redesign it?" "Ooh, yes..." "Let's make it greyscale, and Aqua, and, well, nicer". "Mmmm".

:p

Probably was more of a legal/copyright issues in the decision not to use the actual Windows logo

..and I don't think it's an accident that it looks more like a giant X than four panes :D
