[kepler-dev] Welcome screen vs Splash screen

Hi all,

The welcome screen and splash screen are both in the code now.  Since 
the Welcome screen simply has http urls (and doesn't do the whole sample 
workflow selection thing) it would be perfectly reasonable to use that 
as the splash instead of the current one.  In any case, having both of 
them is a little noisy during startup.

My vote would be to have the welcome screen completely replace the 
splash.  I'd get rid of the frame (ie, make undecorated) so the user 
doesn't have minimize/maximize buttons, make it stay on top of the other 
application windows, and consider changing the urls it points to.  Are 
the urls going to be documents distributed with the Kepler application - 
or will they continue to be remote http urls?
