I have actually new iso and repo on the way. With better illumos 
branding and version number reverted from 148.0.1 back to 148 as 
suggested by Albert.

There is no illumos logo anywhere on the desktop at the moment.

I have put "powered by illumos" label in /etc/release, /etc/motd. Also 
kernel bootmsg contains illumos changeset id.

It will be clear that the system is powered by illumos code.
