Even if there were just a spinning line in the corner of the screen, this would be helpful. Someone who has installed Mint for the first time needs to know that the OS is booting; the blank black screen doesn't convey that.
Great !!!! Thank You Linux Mint Team !!!!
Unfortunately, I downloaded the two versions of Linux Mint 13 RC, and the splash screen is still completely black. There will be time to work around this before launching the final version ???? It should be borne in mind that we are before a LTS thus is not a version any, must be excellent.-
Few questions about this.
Do splash screens make boot time slower?
What splash screen would you use?
Would the splash screen be elegant in any environment including work, home?
Would this splash screen have he mint logo?
If it did have the mint logo would it be easy to remove for distros based on it?
I would like something like sabayon linux. They have a really nice looking boot screen while they still work with most hardware
Thank you very much to everyone for your comments !!!! the truth is needed boot screen in Linux Mint 13, but knowing that it will be a LTS version, officially supported for 5 years !!!! Hopefully we meet ......
I too would like to see some kind of splash screen.... I also agree it doesn't need to be flashy but at the very least allow us to know there is some progress being made.
I don't have a problem with a bland, black & white boot screen as long as it shows something happening. Booting from a live CD takes long enough to begin to wonder if something has gone horribly wrong unless there is a progress bar or something similar.
I propose a gray background, not black or white.
I like logo with points.
I must admit having a nice loading screen like in Julia's is certainly a feel good factor compared to the black screen of uncertainty.
