You have successfully traced a feature of the linux operating system to
its real cause. 

You have taken your first step back towards the light side of the
source. =) (I also must congratulate you on your recognition of the
inferiority of certain bad GUIs.) 

That its Ugly bootup is a result of a chaotic kernel. 

Now lets see if you can make the next step and recognise that chaotic
software is inferior to well-orgainized software and thereby recognise
this as a fundamental flaw in LiNuKs itself. 

If you can do that I'll pronounce you cured of irrational Linux
fanaticism! =)

If your grandmother can use Linux then perhaps she wouldn't mind
admining my server/router and my workstation for me, I just don't have
the time.    http://users.erols.com/alangrimes/  <my website.
