Wow!, gNS 3.0 and reloaded (just better than Matrix) :P
Really nice!
Great work all :)

Hi all, this is my contribution... it's just a sketch .png indexed...we are a little limited to work with gradients and shadow-levels, but anyway it 's possible works some fx....

Usplash themes can only have 256 colors, so it's hard to add effects - although not impossible.

About the localization, I have no idea.

Cool!! Could you also send the source file, please?

Here is the .svg source. The progressbar is an embedded
PNG-format image.

Tough choice at the moment.

I like briareoh's Ubuntu-like GNOME-big-widget-style simple
elegance. I think it's good to keep the capitalization in the name, since it's
kind of part it.

Bruno's design is a bit more original. Having the logo in it's
true colors brings out gNewSense's brand/identity better, but somehow I
find it less attractive. Maybe it could be livened up a little with
some subtle graphical effect. Can usplash be localized (and can we
borrow the localizations from some other project)? Otherwise, it might be
better to leave the "Loading" text off.

You were probably both still getting to this, but I'll suggest it anyway: the name could do with a bit of wow. I'm not an artist in
any way, so the only effects that spring to mind are the ones that
seem to be fashionable these days:
- the 'round' effect, like the progress bar (and what Ubuntu has
in it's usplash I believe)
- the reflective floor effect

I'm just brainstorming. I'm sure you (having some actual graphical

talent) can come up with much better stuff. Keep up the good work.
