SubjectRe: [ANNOUNCE] Animated framebuffer logo for 2.4.1
remember this will only affect those who use the frambuffer console
anyway. I for one never use frambuffer for my servers so it won't affect
the important machines anyway :-)

and for the desktop market, the idea of a pretty logo with the details a
keystroke away is not unreasonable
