Don't forget that embedded devices boot much more often than their desktop
counterparts, and they are most often used by people who definitely fall into
the non-linux savvy demographic (like my grandmother).

We use the Linux Progress Patch (http://lpp.FreeLords.org/) for our
solutions. Despite the size that it adds to the kernel (a 240 x 320 image is
a pretty big linux_logo.h file), I feel that it makes the kernel booting
procedure more painless for the average user (and the hackers can always use
dmesg to find out what happened).
