Ubuntu Boot Up Logo

In my opinion it's just a question of "polish". The rest of a default
ubuntu install looks very tidy, but the boot process, while obviously
informative, looks exactly like the kind of hacker mumbo jumbo which
scares new users off. It detracts from the "fit and feel" of the rest
of  the system. Nearly every other modern distro has a graphic boot
process, there's a reason for it...

A graphic bootup with the option to drop into verbose mode (eg splashy,
usplash etc) is a perfect compromise for those who need the boot info,
and those who'd like their OS to look like it was put together post

Then again ubuntu offers another way which someone else on ubuntuforums
pointed out - keep your monitor off until you hear the bongos! :)
