 Hi everyone,

The splash screen looks very nice (Good job Mirek). My problem here is that, the splash screen is sometimes not needed/wanted by the end user (myself). For example, when I open a document (.odt), the splash screen shows up and it disturbs my work flow. Since the programs starts fast (<2 s). There should an option to disable spashscreen or have it start after timed amount.

Another alternative, which I thought right now, is to have a small pop up on the screen corner with the progress bar. This way the user can be notified about the start up progress and not have the entire screen taken over by the splash screen.

Hi everyone,
Here's my proposal on how to replace the splash screen:
The Start Center would lose the standard chrome of LibO and stand as a very
lightweight application that opens while LibO loads, removing the need for a
splash screen.
For individual applications (where the Start Center is skipped over), there
would be an undistracting notification that the app is opening.
