I guess the word "pretty" i a matter of personal taste. Many *buntu 
users ask the opposite question: "how to get rid of the 
not-so-informative eye candy" and see whats really going on when a linux 
system boots in all its glory.

I do, for example. So in the file /etc/default/grub I have removed the 
words "quiet splash". After doing so and saving the edits (as root, of 
couse), one will need to run 'sudo update-grub'. On next reboot there's 
no more eye candy, just a lot of information scrolling by.
