As time goes on I notice that "less is better" as far as these Windows
splash screens are concerned. The splash screens look increasingly
more subtle and better up to the point of Win XP. Then Vista comes
along and all they present is a tiny Windows logo with no text to identify
it as Vista. This is a prime example of the attitude behind the Vista user
interface. IMHO it's a big mistake. It will appeal to many loyal, devoted
and experienced Windows users but it only serves to confuse many
novice computer users.

How many times have I asked a potential customer, "What version
of Windows are you running?" and they can't tell me. Personally,
I think that new Vista splash screen has taken the concept of
"less is better" too far.

It was interesting to note the background on the Windows 1.01 and 2.03 splash screens. Was there a hidden meaning there?
