    The source is available and you are free to customize your boot screen on your own machine.

I suppose it would be theoretically possible for the screen firmware to do a visual slide from one resolution to another (Photoshop transition effects on your screen?) but most digital screens optimize for a consistent resolution, not transitions (it might be interesting to see what an older analogue display does with such transitions, if someone has an older analogue display and an older analogue graphics card).
      From what I remember, that's how the Commodore Amiga works and why it has that support for having two things displayed, one as a pull-down tray from the top of the screen. It switches video timing part-way down the screen.

      Of course, the Super Nintendo's Mode 7 is probably king of effects like that, since things like the road surface in racing games like Top Gear are accomplished by setting different background scaling and translation parameters for each scanline. (I'm guessing there's a scanline interrupt they can hook, but, for all I know, they might have had to pour through machine language timing charts to get the timings to line up.)

        Fedora and OpenSUSE do that already, Ubuntu can't be different either.
        Not my Windows (Windows 7) and that's what I expect.
        I would like to see a progress bar instead of company X or Y, which looks like ads to me.

          Hey Michael. How is it going with the performance regressions of Ubuntu 20.04 on your Intel laptop? That was a serious finding that IMO deserves a follow up. A good idea would be to contact Canonical to see what they know (if they know lol).

            I'm already spammed by the BIOS before the bootloader.
            I don't need to be reminded again what brand of laptop I bought.
            Normally and if I put Ubuntu on a flash drive, I want to see what operating system I'm booting not what brand of laptop or motherboard the computer has.
            i find this pretty idiotic and childish.
            I remember when I was using Nvidia with proprietary driver I think and they had stupid idea to put their logo before the computer booted, which I really hated.
            That is just your opinion. No one else really cares about that opinion tough

              You're "reminded what brand of laptop you bought" every time you look at it. The vast majority of laptops have logos front and back.

                Seriously wtf is this "free advertising" bs, the laptop has a bigass logo on the chassis, for chrissake.
                Unfortunately people get bent out of shape over trivial things. i can't remember the last time i watched my system boot, its "turn on", leave the room and get coffee started

                  First thing on every new desktop is to switch off this logo crap and back to standard BIOS information. I like it the way debian does:

                  BIOS info (my setting)
                  GRUB menu
                  boot progress text info
                  login

                    As expected: Some news about a Canonical contribution and the bashmob lines up. As usual with totally absurd arguments: "advertising", "prolonged boot times", reiterations of how Canonical does not contribute enough, you know, the usual crap. Isn't that getting boring?

                      Tuxee It is always interesting to see people going great lengths to deny even the most obvious facts.
