Thing the first: What happened to Pluto?
Thing the next: Current splash screen depicts electrons, not photons:

I made a splash screen than actually has photons in it:

Hi,

For the name, see https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=510201 for details. Photon was chosen by the Eclipse Community under a transparent process, taking into accounts various constraints.
About the splashscreen, it's already settled. See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=518941 . You can already download milestones at https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/index-developer.php and see this splashscreen in action.

Cheers,

Pluto won the popular vote. Bigly.
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=511933
How does Apache have more influence than the Eclipse community in naming Eclipse?

I made a splash screen that represents the popular vote:
