Thanks for your work. My personal preference is for simplicity in boot
splash screens - just because while I'm watching it for the 1000th
time I start to wish that the thing would just boot as quickly as
possible and not waste its time doing fancy graphics (even though I
know that it doesn't really make any difference to the boot speed).
Hence I like the first example.

As a matter of interest, had you thought about updating the colour
scheme to link with the new Ubuntu colours ? I know Studio wasn't
using the old Ubuntu colours anyway, but if we want to make a change,
then it would be logical to do it at the same time.
