    Doesn't really matter. If you want a splash screen, it's also useful to have slower bootup. Otherwise you won't see it.

      Not very useful stuff on SSD.
      Some people want it so it's better to include it on base distro.

        Plymouth works fine with systemd

        Plymouth does not depend on nor use any particular init system. Passphrase prompting and message handling work assuming the correct code to talk to Plymouth in the programs called by systemd. Systemd itself is not in the way, and it's passphrase handling routines work fine with plymouth --ask-for-password handling the input. Fsck progress handling is said to work now in Ubuntu with compiled themes, but my theme is scripted and I have yet to really screw with that,
