I would love an animated splash screen, just for a bit of eye candy to replace the purple splash (with 4 dots) during the boot sequence. I know it will slow down boot time but I don't care I just want it to look good. When I show my friends how much better looking Ubuntu is than windows the splash really lets it down.
Any one know a good alternative to the existing Plymouth boot?
I could not get mine to change the splash screen (with terminal or gui apps), and it is now broken, it just shows a load of error messages at boot but still starts Ubuntu.
