Agreed. A lot of it depend son how you do it. If you simply remove the
trademarked images, etc., well yeah things will look funny/not work
right. If you *repelace* them with images of the same format and size,
that's a different story. Of course, if your new images look funny ...

I've got several servers that are running "Red Hat Linux" 7.3. There is
nothing of RH trademarks left, and everything works flawlessly.
