Re: [rhdiscuss] Re: Graphical boot



An upgrade is an upgrade... a reasonable comment, I think, by Chris.
And, in fact, I *did* do an upgrade.

I downloaded rhgb, and it *now* does a graphical boot. I probably prefer
seeing the raw text, but that's a separate issue. I think a graphical
boot option is a "plus".

One note...the install (upgrade) process *does* talk about the graphical
boot. I think it's a bit misleading to feature that when it's not there
"by default" with an upgrade. I have to think many, many people will be
doing upgrades rather than new installs.
