i know that too and have previously agreed that i probably misinterpreted
earlier emails from people at sourceger
ill try and dig out the email from Eric from the archives if i can, but i
am not claiming that we are allowed use the sourcegear artwork but i seem
to be unable to say that clearly, i just dont like the ant.
i will have to also dig up the mail where a user said people were spooked

picture of a bug (they did not see Abi the ant as a friendly mascot).
The point i was trying to make was
by all means use the unix splash screen
(but i disagree with reason martin gave for using it)
and on the seperate matter, can we get a replacement icon for windows that
is not an Ant.
