I do agree splash screens should not be at the top of our list and to
Fedora's credit Open Office and Gimp do load quickly, but I also feel
strongly we should not lose site of what we are trying to accomplish.

"Provide the best user experience possible!"

IMO folks will seek out the distro that delivers on that vision.

I would remind everyone many of the other distro's
(Ubuntu/openSuSE/Zenwalk/Vector/and the list goes on) have decided to theme
the splash screens of Open Office and Gimp. I do not know how they came to
that decision but I believe they simply want to provide the best user
experience possible.

Although I have not provided a submission as of yet, one could easily apply
the same arguments (pro/con) to the Gnome Screen Saver Lock screen. Perhaps
the grub splash screen as well.

I would encourage us to not focus on what we can't do but rather focus on
creating everything we can to provide the "best user experience possible".
We started early, we have the talent, let's go for it!
