Last night I booted my box to Redhat 7.1 instead of Debian unstable (I have both on my system). It got me thinking while watching the boot sequence: Why doesn't Debian use some similar technique of showing a green OK if the init.d script loads properly or a red failed if the script fails? Functionally Debian's current method of showing the name of the program started or some informative text works great. But I tend to like things that are visually easy to understand or beautiful. Don't get me wrong, I have been using Debian for years. It is a well thought out and put together OS... It is just not plesent to look at, at times. For example, the GNOME packages are more or less the stock, there don't appear to be many visual Debian customizations to the package. Would it really hurt to show some Debian pride and polish some of those interfaces? What do you think?
