Does the about screen need to be a new window? Or can it be something like an alert box that displays the "about" information, or maybe a messageDialogBox? anyone have any suggestions on how you may have done that?

However you want to implement it is fine, as long as it conveys the necessary information, and displays it in a reasonably formatted & relatively professional manner! (It doesn't need to be fancy, but it shouldn't be sloppy either.)

I'm thinking to just have a button that pops up a dialog box with all the information in it as long as it's big enough to fit it all. It would make the code cleaner to not have an entirely new window, in my opinion.
