unless I missed a change in the defaults, what you say here is obviously

And yeah, my position stands still the same. Spinfinity looks *much*
As for Elad's original question -- that the boot will take 0.5s on
hyper-super-"awesomest"-modern hardware means practically nothing.
You cannot count on your average user to have that. I have a machine
able to play "easier" 720p h.264 videos, still the boot takes tens of
seconds at the very least in F17 (haven't measured it lately, it used
to be around 1 minute, and the speed-up does not seem very
significant). Furthermore, if a reboot's going to be occasionally
long, we still need to show something that will not make the user think
his OS is from the 90s...
And yeah, some way of showing a progress is needed, as long as it's
meaningful (we *need* a way for a user that the [re]boot is taking long
because it's fscking, installing updates, re-labelling, whatever; and
not because something went wrong -- whenever we can).
