Mine doesn't crash- it just tells me I need to upgrade my graphics drivers. I don't get to the Mojang screen at all.
Edit: Here is a log:
Bad video card drivers!

Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.
