Ben, Hjalti, and I have almost come to a conclusion, well, a top two from the huge amount of selection. And did I mention we've had couple of headaches? Man it was very very difficult to choose and decide which ones go in and out and why.
Anyhow, we're happy that it now comes down to two choices, much easier (or not) to choose now than before.
I'll keep you guys posted which one we declare the winner of the Blender 2.59 Splash Screen Contest.
