Has a gnome splash screen been finalised yet?
I have some suggestions and will contribute some mockup ideas (for what
it is worth...).
I think the splash screen should _not_ be a silly little box in the
center of the screen, but should incorporate the entire screen.
Something similiar to the login screen where you have the full-screen
ubuntu background and the login dialog. Perhaps We could even use the
exact same background but have the brown bar at the bottom display the
loading status and icons and the login dialog swapped for something like
"starting gnome"/or whatever..
A little box of a splash screen does little justice for a full-fledged
desktop like Gnome and it just looks a little tacky. For those in
disagreement, I will supply some mockups later this week and post again
when they are ready..
