    SubjectRe: Now, why didn't we think of this before?
    Andrew Vanderstock' own words:
    :-> Simple expect script could leverage this under free unixes. Even OS/2 boots
    :-> graphically.

    I don't know if this has changed for OS/2 4.0 (moved to linux before
    it!) but in 3.x it just displayed a bitmap and then started printing
    text mode messagess during the boot up and driver loading. _Then_
    moved to graphic mode when the system was actually already booted and
    it had to just load the GUI (something like loading xdm as soon as the
    boot finishes?). I wouldn't call this a graphical boot.
