    Phoronix: One Last Hurrah For USplash: A New Theme

    Pushed into the Jaunty repository this morning for Ubuntu 9.04 was a new theme for USplash. This Canonical project for providing a splash screen at boot-up on Ubuntu is being replaced by Plymouth with Ubuntu 9.10 (the Karmic Koala release), but there is a new Ubuntu theme as one last hurrah...

        Why is it that whenever X starts up there's always some garbled mess on the screen before the mouse cursor shows up?

              Depends on the driver, I guess. I've never seen it happen on any of mine... (well, except when opengl stuff crashes)

                I don't get it, what's so exciting about a boot splash screen? Better try to improve boot times, suspend/resume support and power management so there's no need to watch a useless splash screen, really.

                  It just shows that they are finally working on the looks.

                    it happens in xf86-video-ati driver.

                    i guess memory is not cleared before display is initialized. i can see checkerboard of my previous desktop session even after hot reboot of the entire system (ctrl+alt+del one).

                      Tbh, someone should code in a little silly game to play while the system is loading. Pong would be excellent.

                      Splash screen with a game >>>>>>> all graphic effects.. You would probably even see people rebooting just to finish stage 1 :|

                      Maybe forcing the system back in the load process for every ball you dont catch? And give you bonus load time by not loading all the system components - might be an advantage for vista

                        Lilo has some games that can be used while you ponder which OS choice to boot
