I like the "splash animation V2" more because it binds the Logo and
the Xubuntu name together.  In v1 they are disassociated.

I like the "Logo version 3" most because it's flatter.  I think that gives
the most professional feel.  The first one gives me the default Windows XP
look "teletubbies" feel.

In the "greeter screen", I think it would look better if the logo and login
would also be bound together by having something like in
the "login_who_00.png" here:
(I liked the 00 version of the "who" ones most because the login part
was *not* transparent.  Transparency on the active/focused part of the
screen is too distracting.)
