- Turn off the graphical grub screen
Even if we are not able to suppress the boot menu entirely, or having a clean boot menu
avoiding the graphical screen will be a win in terms of reduced visual noise.
The intended design here is that grub has a 0 timeout if installed in a

Since the switch to grub2, it has in fact had a 5 second timeout in each

except as mjg59's note that some systems now apparently make it hard to
bring up the menu in the 0 timeout case dictates.
The "progress bar that indicates the progress in 'booting the
bootloader'" does not indicate 'progress in booting the bootloader',
it's just a graphical representation of the timeout. It counts down 5
seconds. Admittedly I don't see what a progress-bar-like-widget
contributes there, but it's not *really* a progress bar, it just looks
like one - it doesn't actually take 5 seconds to 'boot' grub.
It seems to me like we might want to co-ordinate work on the multiboot
grub config fd.o spec thing you're working on, and revising how we do
bootloader configuration, if we're going to do that.
