Okay, I agree that having an image just because Windows has one is not a
Ubuntu can definitely be different.
But if it's different, I'd still like it to be friendly,
helpful/informative when needed and aesthetically pleasing. Ubuntu's
slogan even says "Linux for human beings". Currently the booting looks
pleasing perhaps if you're Arnie The Terminator. :-)
(While we're at it, these days people prefer 'starting' over 'booting',
and 'restart' over 'reboot'. Not many people would no wat 'booting'
refers to anyway.)
So.. different, sure..! A 3D rendered sand-storm with impressive
savanna ambient sound effects would be nice, ultimately revealing an
Ubuntu logo / oasis where one can login. Or, make it an animated
pyramid construction, with each system that gets started being a
building block being put into place. Users may zoom in to examine the
blocks, any block that fails to start properly will be shown visually
distinctive, closer examination will product an error message, spoken
words of course, common language and and informative.
So there, that's different. :) (But failing that, I'll settle for a 16
color VGA image. :)
