Question Is it possible to remove the Ubuntu splashscreen?

Hey guys, dont ask why, but i'd like to remove the Ubuntu splashscreen (when it says ubuntu and has the orange dots), and be able to see the command line and the stuff being started, like you can see it saying that its stopping the devices and unmounting the filesystems when you shut it down. Is this possible? If so, please tell me how to do it. Thanks in advance.

Ypu can it by editing your /etc/default/grub file. From a terminal, enter:
gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
At the beginning of the file, look for the line:
Change it to:
Save and close gedit. Now update GRUB's boot configuration script. From the terminal, enter:
sudo update-grub
Reboot and you will now see the kernel messages.

Hope it helps.
