Description:

A messy, homely, fun KDE splash that probably no one besides myself will like, perfect for regressions to childhood. Maybe someone who's retained more of their kindergarten skills than I have will improve upon the idea with something along the same lines but a little nicer.

First thing I've ever uploaded. Somebody with more time and patience can make the icon set. ;)

This is great! I don't know why anyone would vote "bad" on this one! A great laugh :)

Thanks :)

Thanks. I hoped somebody would see the fun in it. Since the splash screen is something that's only seen briefly every once in a while, I would submit that it's not subject to the same usability guidelines as other omnipresent resources such as icons, wallpaper, etc. (assuming it's something the user intentionally installs, of course) and should be something that might induce a laugh or smile to get things started on the right note. In fact, it might be kind of fun if there were a way to have the splash screen selected at random from a collection, in the tradition of the "Message Of The Day" or whatnot. It seems to me that it's inherited that role, alongside conveying it's modest information load. Anyone else feel that way? :)
