kubuntu and plymouth
 
Hello to everybody,
I've just seen that plymouth is being integrated in k/ubuntu land for lucid.
This is a great thing because it gives us a very polished user experience
during boot (no flickers, nice artwork, animations, etc).
Another good point for kubuntu is that with plymouth ubuntu and kubuntu are
again at the same level (kubuntu lagged xsplash integration). So it would be
nice to have a nice boot experience for kubuntu! What's missing?

Essentially 2 things:
1) KDM integration
At the moment plymouth fades in a nice way to gdm. This is not true with kdm.
I know there are a lot of things that you guys are doing already, so probably
there won't be a kdm integration.
2) A nice artwork: KDE Oxygen team will help distributions for free (time
permitting). We could try to genlty ask Nuno for a nice "Oxygenized" (or
should I say "Aired" :) ) kubuntu plymouth theme that will be similar in style
with what kde 4.4, that willl ship with lucid, has to offer.

Ubuntu will have a nice and polished boot experience and we'll able to not
fall behind, at least for point 2, at almost zero cost.
Great news, I guess! :)
