It was just a mean spirited and unwarranted attack. It would have been nice
if you'd actually included the attribution to the person who wrote it.
Rashkae and I have both been known to be hard on you, but I don't think
either of us have attacked you out of the blue like that.

No, he says he has a "question", not a problem. And his question is "how,
technically, is a splash screen [I think] displayed". To which I think the
answer Florian gave: "using the Linux kernel's frame buffer API" is the best
response we can provide at the moment.
