Exactlly!! So, I don't get it, why change something they don't care
about? Let's change their office expirience. Leave the boot, it's one
boot in one day, who cares?

And you know, framebuffer (kernel addition to support splashes)
introduces many disadvanteges for users. Disadvatages like "my X won't
start" and "3D isn't working anymore", stuff like "Why was my hoary
faster in rendering than Breezy is?". This problems are on hourly base,
and booting process is something you do once.
