If I press esc when the Windows logo comes up there is McAfee displaying
it's scanning progress on screen... Could it be that even if there is
output, if echo is off, that Windows ignores it unless you press esc?
> SuSE/Windows Mailing List now!? :)
Yeah. It's part of that open source Windows thing some people want. SuSE
got a head start on it, watch for Caldera OpenWindows 2000 and RedHat
Windows 6.2 next week. ;-)

I admit I wouldn't mind it. In away, I think a graphical startup
transitioned into a graphical login looks more "polished" then text. Perhaps
especially people who used DOS and upgraded to Windows 95 (and then switched
to Linux)? My Dell has that BIOS logo you mention.

I agree with you, I'd probably turn it off, or at least look behind it
often - but it still looks nice, especially a well designed logo.
