    How would a graphical bootscreen keep them away from becoming curious?
    With my bootsplash patch you can either choose to hide the kernel
    messages completely, or have the boot messages scroll down on a
    graphical background. No information missing, it just looks a lot
    better.

    The world is just not just technophile freaks, sorry if this
    is new to you ;-)

    Freedom for those who are more equal than others.
