Show boot process instead of splash

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I want to see the boot process meanwhile booting instead of the splash screen, in most linux distros with grub2 you just edit /etc/default/grub or equivalent and remove quiet, splash from the defaults and then run: sudo update-grub But it doesn't seem to have any effect on 13.04, it still shows the splash screen while booting, any ideas? I'm sure there is more people than me out there that enjoys the boot process text more than the standard graphical splash screen. (HowTos)
