Splash is fine when working slowly.
- splash is not required for normal work
- splash becomes nag after awhile
- FreeMind' splash constantly stealing focus, which is wrong by it's own!
I've made ahk script for those poor souls who got same problems as me:
WinWait, FreeMind ahk_class SunAwtFrame,,30
Put it to FreeMind directory, create shortcut and run it instead of freemind.exe. Splash will be hidden once appear (little chance of lost char when entering text still exist, however not it's possible to do something when while FreeMind loads).
hope there will be more natural way to get rid of splash screen.
