Even with a checkbox to disable it happening again, I am strongly
against having a splash screen. Anything that has a negative impact on
the user's workflow is something we shouldn't do. We are a free, open
source, no-ads product, but this kind of popup screams advertisement
(Even if it isn't in reality). We want this to be visible, yes, but not
get in the way.

Yes, we need metrics on that, but I have a feeling most people haven't
tampered with that setting.
