I got tired of booting with no startup-sequence to start troublesome demos and games, so I wrote a small boot menu that lets you select different startup scripts with the F-keys.
- The keyboard is checked before the image is loaded, so if you hold down an F-key during boot the script will be launched silently.
- If you press an F-key that doesn't have a script defined, the menu just quits and resumes normal boot. I'm using this to launch the Workbench on F1.
- You can also quit the menu with Esc or LMB.
