cc'ing marketing, since this is a vital branding issue.

Tim - be sure to look at this page:
and read through this discussion thread:

concerning boot animation... there's been very useful reflection
including mockups on the issue.

We have been unhappy with the OLPC-OS v8.2 and prior boot animations
which never communicated what OS is loading, and we are in discussions
with OLPC for the XO-1.5s to show a Sugar logo at boot.

by blue swirl i assume you mean the Fedora background? my
understanding is that it is indeed customizable. i agree that a sugar
logo (plus maybe fedora remix logo?) would be better.
