    I love the intro movie that plays the first time you start your computer. I wish it played every time i start.

    God no, I cannot stand it.

    If you have to install OS X as often as I did, you'd hate it too.

    You get strange looks from PC people when it plays. It all adds to the froo-frooness of the Mac in their eyes.

    Not a huge fan of it here either. Not that I get bored with it or don't like it but it's a waste of time IMO. If I have have reinstall I hate waiting for that video to get done playing so I can get on with the important stuff.

    I just love how it looks. Sure it's a waste of time but what isn't?

    This is the joy of installing OS X. I think it is really cool looking. I reinstall OS X because of it.

    Gahville. It's a nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there.
    This stupid music is always playing.

    Dooobee do-woo dobeedo-woowoooo..

    You know, if you reinstall OS X more than 20 times, your Mac will blow up, right?

    LOL; you should just record it and play it each time you wanna watch it. No need to reinstall OSX each time you wanna watch the freakin video :D

    I'm impartial. I think it's a complete waste of time though. I don't see why it's there. Sure, it's cool, but I could do without too

    BTW, eva01 is not a female. No need for a poll about that one, so you can hold off.

    Nah, I mean, if its the first time you install OS X/ get a new computer, its cool, you get little goosebumps, LOL.

    But after watching it a couple of times, it gets boring.

    SOLUTION: As soon as you reinstall/power up for the first time, you should have two options:

    1) Play the welcome video ( you'll get welcomed in languages you didnt even know existed! :cool: )

    2) Skip the video ( Steve will get sad :( )

    What do you think?

    A skip video button would be fantastic! Another hope for 10.5 ;)
