Please, do not let us sacrifice functionality for this purpose. Nobody wants to 
acknowledge this. Nobody. Yes, nobody.
Please remember software that does want you to acknowledge something like this. 
You hate it. For good reason.

Please remember the reason for the splash screen as we discussed it already: 
Inform the user that something
has happened when he started the software, if the startup time is long. Thats 
it. The logo is perfect and the warning
message does not harm this purpose.
