  Hehehe. Well, as far as I believe there isn't a SWORD 
"namesake" GUI for any operating system other than Windows, thus the "for 
Windows" part. Both the BibleTime and GnomeSword authors have talked to me 
about working on splash screens, but of course they would include those names 
rather than "The Sword Project" on the splash screen.

  Hmm... you have a point. The idea behind brightening the background was to 
leave more emphasis on the dark (black, actually) text in the foreground, but 
in some ways the darker ones have more clarity...

  I'm kinda leaning towards #20 at the moment too.

  Hey, there's no reason to do that. ;-)
