Boot

Instead on thinking more on how to embellish the boot sequence, I would like to suggest that the devs concentrate more on the boot speed and significantly increase it, it's so important for many users (especially knowing that firewire gets broken after a suspend or hibernate resume....).

Also, I really like the actual boot graphics, the problem is that it has to load X twice (one for boot another for dektop).

Already addressed under FCNewInit:

Possible steps to enhance boot startup:
- Clean up all initscripts
- Clean up /etc/init.d/functions
- Replace /etc/rc
- Make gdm/prefdm an initscript with early login
- D-Bus support

Possible steps to enhance boot startup:
The only way to make it fast is to execute actions in parallel.
Right now boot is serial and wastes 99% of cpu speed.
Linux boot time is insanely slow.
