I love the splash screen comp, if only because its interesting to deal with the experience of luxrender symbolically.
Luxrender has meant a lot to me, its given me a means to work on my art with integrity, clean all the way thru because its transparent, no hidden stuff.
Fine art requires honesty, judging a piece of art as good or bad is a consumer consciousness, like science art is about a process the end result being commentary on that process producing a communication about experience. Like or dislike does not matter so much as the honesty of the statement.
Without FOSS there is always a doubt about honesty.
Luxrender 1.0 is a important benchmark.
