Are you guys talking about a build time configure switch, a runtime 
command line argument to soffice, or past each other?

Kind of getting lost in the noise, but Bryan Q. had proposed unilaterally in to clobber the SplashScreen.  He's
abandoned that heavy handed approach, and several parallel facets are being
addressed, both Design/Branding and implementation.

Please read the whole thread...

There is no immediacy to the issue as at the moment folks who do not want to
see a splash screen can disable it by changing 'Logo=1' to 'Logo=0' in the
soffice.ini configuration file in the installation directory.  Of course
that is per-machine not per-user.  Alternatively, soffice.bin or soffice.exe
can be launched from command line (when on PATH) with flag "-nologo" which
is per-user/per-launch.

So, retaining a SplashScreen by default should cause little concern for
folks who might object to it--as they can simply suppress it.  What might be
desirable,  is a a more convenient way to disable it via GUI--either a check
box, or as a stanza in Advanced Configuration.

As to design/branding --despite Adolfo's objections otherwise-- the
artwork/branding for the 5.0 release was done by "contest" and finalized  by
paid graphic artist--result was agreed to by community.   But there is
"residual" work to be done refreshing the TDF/LibreOffice branding which
dates from 3.3 and 4.0 era. But that is a different topic.
