Huh? After terming the BSD-with advertising-clause license  `obnoxious'?

I'm *not* a developer. 
As a  user, I will find it  extremely inconvenient to be  faced with a
load of messages *anytime*, boot, or whatever. 

I hope you will appreciate that  most distros are trying their best to
mask the  boot messages from  users, because users  do not want  to be
concerned  with all  those mess(ages).  How  else do  you expect  that
credits should be displayed?
