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
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.
