Logo explained here, in case the link got lost:


As commented to Jon, I'm not fond with getting rid of it, as was
designed, by free by Rodolfo Budeguer.

As for the "for Windows" legend, I know was a 5 minutes wrap up,
spacing, mostly white one, is highly important on designs.

I'm fond with the change of moniker and get rid of the misleading
"One-Click", so "for Windows" should follow the exact same spacing
rules that "one-click away" legend has.

This means "for Windows" should only be expanded through "Installer"
word, and not over Ruby safe area.

Apologizes to send a someway convoluted response but work has been
overwhelming the past weeks.
