Who wants to write a basic About box for Linux Lite?

Thank you :)

icon removed
Here you can see what I had wrote previously from the image, how the menubar shrinks to fit the font size of the menus, if an icon was used there at the same size it would be this size, whereas it expanded to produce the same space above the icon rather than above the fonts, as the icon was too big, so it made it too big a space above the fonts.It might help someone else if they weren't sure about it. Last icon was 24x24 ,so it might work with 16x16 icon instead.

Yes please.

Shall I remove it from the menubar ?
I cannot get it on the taskbar.

Looks like there has been a slight misunderstanding with the small LL logo in the top left hand corner of the app. That icon is supposed to be on the taskbar. Sorry for any confusion.
