X11, Window Managers Have you ever been annoyed by Linux' lack of a coherent graphical boot process? Graphics hardware causing problems during sleep/wake cycles? Problematic virtual terminal switches?

Phoronix takes a look at this new feature.

No.

I'm not interested in seeing it boot. I'm preoccupied with using it.
