Excellent work Who! My preferences are simple: The first splash and the
first gdm theme :-)

Splash 14 has been very popular, but my primary objection to it is that it
is not as powerful matte/glass combination as fx 01 or 02 is. I still like
14, I just like 01 better :-) If people are so keen on 14, then why not 15
instead? The lighting is a bit more "alive" in that one...

Anyway, good work, cheers,
