Right now, booting spews all the boot messages on the console. This slows the boot process (due to scrolling), and wastes power, as well as being unsightly. And we know Nicholas to well to know he'll let the current situation last forever.
I'm partial to the style of boot I now see on modern Linux systems, with progress bars.
There is also a UI question here: what should our OLPC splash screen look like during system boot.
This is an opportunity for someone to get involved, until Nicholas starts complaining and forcing our hands...
