Description:

Hi,
This bootsplash theme was inpired by the Matrix scene where Mr. Anderson has to choose between the red pill and the blue pill.
It has a sample configuration file also, for 800x600x256 mode.
Note: The earlier version had a glaring error, so was taken off altogether.

hmm, actually someone had the same idea sooner ... "spiff" has uploaded a very good splash theme with the same setting. look out for "EnterTheLinux" (in the splash screen section of course).

Not trying to run the other version down, but there is a technical mistake in that. You see Morpheus has the blue pill in the right hand and the red pill in the left. Neo chooses the pill in the left hand. In the other version, the windoze logo is on the left hand. Should have been on the right, imho. That said, the other theme, is visually enhanced as compared to my "poor man's" look. :-)
Btw this was not inspired by the other theme. Honest!

hmm, maybe you're right with this left hand - right hand story ... seems like you watched this movie more than once *g*
i think we should work together on a corrected version. i asked spiff to upload a high resolution image showing the hands only. it should pose no problem to put the official "tux" and a windows-logo into the "right" hands :)
