    i doesn't necessarily tell you to, but shows you how to. i'd give it a shot. maybe you'll like it. maybe you won't.

    everything is about preference.

    i would, the default screen doesnt tell you anything

    sometimes you can find problems you didnt even know existed

    Hmm, I don't think it's about liking it or not. Surely it's more like a troubleshooting process to see if there are any problems at start up and what's going wrong where?

    Good tip, verbose mode is better than the default no mode. :)

    It doesn't do anything if you do/don't do it. The default screen just covers that up. Kinda like most Linux distros.

    Performance will be no different.

    Yes, I understand this. But, it will show you problems if anything exists...

    revive

    found this thread, thought i'd revive it.
    I'm wanting to do the same but does this prevent you from using other key-combos during boot?

    Not if you turn on always booting in verbose mode via the Terminal command. Then you don't have to Command+V at startup.

    right, but say i wanted to boot into single user mode, having verbose mode on by default wouldn't prevent me from doing so?
