I agree with Bringing… rather than Opening…

Bringing is better English and many people would not get the double meaning of Opening…

I still like a map for the splash screen. Of the 2 logos you did, I think the white background looks classier.

I like this one - I think it well represents what GRASS is.  (perhaps GRASS GIS?)

GRASS. Bringing advanced geospatial technologies to the world.


Much more better than the current:

The world's leading open source GIS

What about

"GRASS, opening advanced geospatial technologies to the world."

I like more the "Bringing advanced..." than "Opening advanced..." because it has emphasis on features. Not everybody understands advantages of openness (yet).

Note that it should be "GRASS GIS", not "GRASS" as much as possible.

We can just create a image with logo+GRASS GIS+motto which could be used as splash and perhaps elsewhere too, for example in headers/titles of pages where we have just the logo and not name (Trac, manual). See attachment for suggestion.
