What alternative are you proposing? Just reverting to 'old school' text

It's one of the nice distinguishing features of Linux over alternative operating systems, watching things happen and passing the time between POST and login, being aware of the many things comprising startup, and seeing quickly if something has or is going wrong. GUI coverups of Windows, Mac and OS/2 startup processes are annoying, like Plymouth.
