The splash screen is designed to appear as soon as possible after
the program is invoked and to disappear 0.5 of a second after
the program is initialised and the first window has appeared.

On some machines this can be almost instantaneous.  On others it
can take several seconds.  As I see it, the splash screen's 
primary purpose caters to the latter case.  It provides some
confidence on slower systems that something is working, (and 
makes it less obvious that the system is slow to initialise).

     Yes. PSPP has great potential to be used from a tablet (in the current 
version can use it 
     without many complications). Gtk3 offers many possibilities in this 
regard. Lists of variables
     could be broader, enabling drag-n-drop and especially follow an orthodox 
style for the 
     data sheet (1 click to select and 2 click to edit).
     I'm excited about PSPP (isvery fast). I can provide feedback for use in a

     The splash screen does not fill in no time. Only see a black box.
     In my little laptop the splash screen appears for less than a second and 
my desktop computer, almost not
     appreciated at all. It's necessary? Better would be a welcome screen.
