Are these the kind of users you want to be running Linux?
Sorry for getting a bit off subject here but people that will think 
"OMG!! What are these lines before Ubuntu boots? There must be some kind 
of error!" do not have a chance to get used to Linux anyway. So why bother?
Personally I like a nice boot screen, but as a previous user explained 
there are some details that need to be looked at as well as some problems.


PS. People confuse things.  "Make linux more pretty and easy for the 
desktop users" and "Make linux look and act more like windows so that it 
gets more noobusers" are not the same.
