Description:

I know, I know.... WHY? Well, there's a reason:

My new Linux server blew its Mo-Bo, so I installed SuSE 7.3 on one of our NT workstations and mounted the old HDD to keep us running while the people RMA'd the part.

Some of my co-workers freaked out. "Where's the "Start" button?!?!" "Why is Explorer NOT installed?!?!?"

So, I installed the XP theme by stephanelassalvy to keep people from freaking out. Well, they did anyway. (Apparently none of my co-workers had seen XP yet.)

So, I installed the extremely underrated Windows 2000 theme and icon set by asifalirizwaan. I haven't heard any complaints since, but I still thought a good Windows-like splash screen might keep people happy, so that's what this is.

Anyway, enjoy, improve, GPL, etc.

But I'd prefer it if it said something like 'X11R6' or 'XFree86' instead of 'X-Windows 2000'.

Why not make it Generic instead of SuSE specific. As KDE can be seen on most Unix flavors. I would suggest to remove that completely (SuSE 7.3), but if you like it.

The Red X looks bad because it tries to cut/cross the Windows. why not draw X Windows in alignment? And Using 32x32 icons would be cool.

Why this already-be-seen and already-be-done splash screen is kept on this site, and great ones like kudzu splash screen are regularly removed ? There is something I don't get, and no one seems to care about my emails at kde-look :(

really, I'm so tired of seeing windows ripoff, even with a nice little introduction... And so disappointed to see great pieces of artwork disappear without a comment...

Why, why am I alone on this site to notice such details ? :/

X Windows is not Politically InCorrect.

I believe X prefers to be called

Just simply: 'X' or 'X Window System'

but I am not sure, I know I just
got yelled at once on a mailing list for referring to it as 'X Windows' ...

Or maybe they could call it "Stories"!
LoL

I hate all this Windows XP shit though. Seriousely, if I wanted my KDE to look like that, I'd run that.

Not to mention, kde-look.org should be more around pushing the design and look of KDE, not trying to mimic the rest of the world's OS's.

Then don't download it, don't install it, just move on.
