The link I provided was the development page. Actual commit: https://github.com/linuxlite/litewelcome/commit/4867f63d16cc113849908b007846112b5023c766

This has not been pushed as a package. It will be there in 2.6

In his review of December 5, 2014*, Gayan said “Below is the boot-logo and it includes a progress-bar, accuracy of which, is questionable.
                     Boot logo of Linux Lite 2.2
As an example, usually when the progress-bar reaches the half limit, the logo disappears and the system executes the login screen and starts to load the desktop. Perhaps the progress-bar then represented the whole boot process (from ‘init’ till the desktop got fully loaded), but I think it should have displayed the progress from ‘init’ to login-screen only, otherwise it can be a bit confusing.
The Desktop…
Linux Lite pops-up a welcome screen when you first login to the desktop. Through there you can install updates (if available), read the online documentation, release notes… though it is not terrible useful, it is nice.
                  Linux Lite 2.2 'Welcome Screen”  *

I (Stan_the_Man) would like to suggest that the LL team make a quick and cosmetic change to the Welcome Screen and simply insert the image of a progress bar at 100% This would reassure newcomers that “No”, the progress bar leaping from the Boot logo of Linux Lite to Linux Lite Welcome Screen is just as cosmetic as the complaint that progress bar is a little “understated”.
I would post the a graphic of the "Proposed Linux Lite  'Welcome Screen'” but I am only allowed to post text attachments.

Excuse the lack of graphics but I hope you get the idea. The concept is to insert the image of a progress bar at 100%  at the bottom of the Linux Lite Welcome Screen
By the time our new linux user shuts off the welcome screen, he or she has been so delighted by it’s great performance, ease of use and completeness that the they find themselves delighted that the “progress bar reaches the half limit, the logo disappears and the system executes the login screen and starts to load the desktop.
Thank you for your consideration and the wonderful LL distro.

Nice indeed :)   I like its in Lite Welcome, one of the 1st things to set at install :)
Will it be referenced in Tweaks or other Lite Tool as well? Thinking of where globally - after say they check don't show Lite Welcome where to find..  FWIW I still see Lite Welcome after boots/log outs.. LOL
