That's always bothered me when I see it, for some reason. Maybe it's the
corporate logos themselves, maybe it's the fact that the distro doesn't own
the software that I access through the menu, or maybe it's just the fact
that I think of my box as "a Linux system" not "an Ubuntu system" or "a
Fedora system." In any event, my preference is to replace it. On my
personal machines, I like to replace the vendor-supplied start logo with a
penguin (not the official Tux, one I put together to look good small and a
little less cartoonish).
Sure, not everybody uses Linux. But it's a more fitting start logo than
anything else for those of us who are running Linux, and without it, you
could go your entire life running Linux without ever actually seeing a
representation of the mascot as part of the system.
Maybe that's just me.
