yes, that delay is required due to timing of the loadbang ... raspbian is also 
quite nice (they are not powerful devices so the less you are running the better 
and very little is started by default in raspbian) ... certainly no need for a 
GUI desktop in many cases (omxplayer will play video and audio files without X, 
but is fairly rudimentary with simple controls via a pipe or dbus only). 
Raspbian also uses /etc/rc.local as its startup script, and does not start the 
desktop GUI by default but has ssh running ready to login remotely.
