On more modern UI, eventually I will get there. It's just not on the agenda this year. Like I said it really would take months for me at my current pace to master a more modern looking UI, but yes I can achieve something similar to your pic, though I'm not sure I would want to I don't like it personally, and would probably go for something a little more modern-MS looking (NOT Metro modern, I mean like Office modern) - because it will blend in better with the OS and not stick out so badly. Maybe that's just my opinion, but either way when I DO go for modern UI, skins will likely not be possible (def. not the ugly classic ones) and there will be one choice in UI appearance, not 20.

I would still like to see some kind of advertisement however.
I don't see a(n easy) way to put an existing logo in there, so I don't think I'm gonna try. Since they can range in size from the ones pictured, I just can't see a method to really get it to work nicely.
That being said, something in the way of a splash screen could be worked in on a delay of a few seconds before app launch (or during update checks, etc. when enabled) - I actually already plan to implement an optional splash screen to run at every login of Windows, like "protected by... " or whatever you want to say, and a graphic for example. Actually the plan is to just make it a local webpage or PNG file that you would include so there would be absolutely ZERO design aspect on my end. The issue with that is getting something that can run without triggering any active anti-virus software.
so that is a topic for another thread...
