I want to do the same in linux -- wat can be done the best in windows.. ie. customise the resources of almost all the apps with resource hacker... so is it possibe in linux?? Like i can remove the word 'windows' in winxp adn change it into 'doors'... similarly can it be done in linux (please no source code re-compilation).? Change all the pics used in apps... ( '' '' '' '' '' '' ).. and finally deploy it in a different computer.. with diff. hardware... Now all dat is a piece of cake in windows.. but how can dat be acived in linux... REMEMBER.. AS I HAV SAID B4.. NO.. AND I MEAN NO SOURCE CODE RECOMPILDATION!!!
