Canada, Eh?
Can we have boot animations on our boot screen? Like the windows one?

I manage to change the apple logo to something else(in this case, a radiohead bear logo that has transparent background).

But i want a boot animation. is it possible?

I think it is possible. The logo should just be a file in the system. But I do not know if it can be changed to a animation like Windows 7.

The OS is not designed to facilitate this, AFAIK, the boot image is just a static PNG image which can be changed with various utilities.

You cannot use any videos or graphics that involve movement, but I believe you can change the image. I don't know how to because I've never been interested in doing so. Please do some searching before posting.
