Nice post from Pi Supply Maker Zone.
When a Raspberry Pi boots and you have an external monitor connected, you will have noticed the many lines of code whizzing by. Whilst this is useful in some situations, it can often be a little distracting too.
I found this to be the case with my Raspberry PiStation build, mainly because I wanted to replicate the nostaligic feeling of playing a retro games console which would boot without reams of code. In my custom build I also managed to add a short MP4 video which would play as part of the boot process, thereby adding to the illusion, but seeing all the text before this detracted from the retro games console feeling.
