Windows has animated spalsh screens to show something on the screen so you don't notice that it's actually wasting resources and taking ages to boot.
Oooooo look pretty pictures.
Under linux you have either a blank screen or the echo of all the commands it is doing. This is no simpler or more complicated per-say than Windows it just does not bother with on screen frippery while it get's the work done. Even under windows it has to load a screen driver to display that splashscreen thats making everything else wait.
Noob is not derogatory the noob is just the lower end of the noob--geek spectrum being a noob is just your first step towards being an uber-geek
If you find a solution please post it in the wiki the forum dies too quick
