According to people that have got theirs from Orange today, just a orange logo on the back and few of the icons are orange branded and a orange home screen.

Got mine last night from Orange.

Back cover has the Orange logo plastered onto it.
On power up, you get the Orange logo appear for a second or so.
The default Sense scene is some ugly Orange one that reminded me of my old SVP M3100.
The "Internet" icon is an Orange version.
There are several demo's that I can't seem to get rid of - Have tried "settings - applications - manage" but no option to remove. I also tried the Android market and Orange's own "AppShop" but still no option to remove.

That's all I've noticed so far in comparisons to the unbranded models I've seen.

Anyone managed to get rid of these demo's without too much farting around? :P

You can update all widgets and still use live wallpapers
Hope this helps.
(i updated mine to generic software using the gold card route)
Didn't like the silly demo apps that couldn't be removed. I'm a neat freak

The branding on my Virgin is just the boot splash, Virgin scene and Virgin homepage.
Got mine from a virgin shop as the deals were better than online.

Does anyone know if someone will be able to extract a Orange ROM so that if someone on orange has insurance and they debrand, then if they need to get it replaced they can reflash the Orange ROM in case orange refuse to give a replacement cause of changed ROM?
