I personally hate bootsplash and graphical boot stuff. I prefer to watch all the kernel message go by the screen. Makes me feel like part of the matrix - lol.
Well I do like the bootsplash for systems I'm setting up for n00bs, I myself never use them. Besides, Mint's bootsplash is sexy!
But here, let me give you a scenario -
The system freezes while trying to boot, kind of handy to watch the process's and see what it's hanging before you break out a boot CD. Especially when you're talking to someone over the phone, just have them let you know what's blowing up while on the phone.
Like I said, not being able to do a simple <esc> to get to the boot messages is totally Unsatisfactory. Hell Fedora, SuSE, etc all have that ability.
