Mint 7 Loading Screen?

Postby geistschatten on Wed May 27, 2009 11:31 pm

I just downloaded and successfully installed Mint 7 Main Edition, but why does the loading screen (see attachment) look so....unfinished?

I mean I like the loading screen for Mint 6, it looked sleek and professional, this new one looks way too basic. Why the change?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I believe the decision was made so it would look good on any resolution, which the old one did not, depending on your resolution, you sometimes would get a big ugly black frame around the striped background image.

My first reaction to the new usplash was the exact opposite of yours, I thought it looked sleek and professional (though I still like the old stripes one), so I guess it's all a matter of choice and personal preference.

I agree completely. On my installation of Elyssa I have an "ugly black frame" around the logo and I think it looks better than the overlarge Gloria. A smaller version of the Ubuntu studio screen using Linux Mint might be cool.
Anyway personal choice and you dont see it for long !

I agree with you. I really like all of the new artwork in Gloria.
