I like number 18 as well.  I guess it is 18, it could be 17.  I can't tell
how the descriptions line up.(I must be a Florida Voter).  Anyway I like the
one that has the thick blue border around it.

  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
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,
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. ;-)
