I had actually made a very nice OBOS logo for my laptop two months ago but
it got lost in the catastrophic hard drive crash (tm).  It had the letters
"OBOS" with an upside-down golden "swoosh" in the background.  Changing it
is simply a matter of importing a bitmap into the resources for Deskbar,
not hard at all.  I presume the rest of the BeOS bitmaps are likewise
incorporated into resources.

I also changed the ugly dude-at-a-chalkboard bitmap (which appears when
you compress the deskbar) into a downward pointing curvy golden
arrow.  This became a problem because I realized that users who put their
deskbar in lower corners might get a little confused =).
