Super-slick boot

Registered by Mark Shuttleworth on 2006-10-19

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "Karmic Start up Look and Feel" for updated plans.

Thanks to the superb work of Matt Garrett and company, we now have a very impressive usplash which is nicely extensible. We will review the entire boot experience and see if we can make it as seamless as the Mac boot experience, with clean transitions between boot stages. This spec will summarize our findings and plans.

Whiteboard

This doesn't need to be proposed for a UDS, we already know the pieces we're waiting for; we just don't have any capability of making them happen faster right now (I'm hiring for someone who could)

For Karmic, this is being discussed at https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/karmic-start-up-look-and-feel . --mpt
