It's a waste of time identifying the OS version, extracting the correct bitmap and then displaying it, especially when most new machines only display it for a fraction of a second. Having just one standard display makes the system boot faster. Isn't that better than having the word Professional on it?
I agree it's silly to extract the correct bitmap at boot time.
You get the correct bitmap at OS install time.
You should keep the correct bitmap at update time.
