Are we paying for watching Amazon Prime production advertisement at Illustrator startup? How much does it cost to remove it?
I've never seen that. Is this on a computer or iPad? If the former, Mac or Windows? Paid subscription or trial version?
Actual Illustrator loading screen on paid subscription on PC looks like in attachment. With all respect for author - if this graphic was chosen just as example of creativity and/or Illustrator capabilities - this is obvious advertisement of new Amazon "Rings of Power" TV show. I'm using Adobe software for over 20 years and this is something new for me and I'm against such actions. Thank you.
I don't think it is an ad for Amazon so much as a promo for the artist.
I guess if an artist does any work professinally or is inspired by a commercial project, then Adobe should ignore it?
Personally, I'm not going to lose any sleep about it.
"...Adobe should ignore it?" Yes and No. Two diffrent points of view here. Just as I've mentioned before. I've seen many awesome works used here but first with so obvious recognizable "inspiration" and I don't like it. The subject is actually controversial (see SM and online articles) and I think it is not good place and timing.
P.S. I'm avare that I'm sharing my personal opinion here but believe me I've discussed this subject with my friends, creators/Adobe users and just art sensitive people and feelings are mixed. Sadly mostly negative and thats why I've decided to start this topic. Cheers.

I would assume that there are blog posts out in the web on how to make your own. I won't post them here, because when altering the application in such a way, it might just stop working and you need to reinstall.
