X11, Window Managers Plymouth is a project to create a flicker free graphical bootup system designed and developed by Red Hat and included in Fedora 10. Red Hat has been working on Xorg drivers and within the Linux kernel to improve and enhance the kernel mode support needed for Plymouth. Fedora 10 included support for many ATI cards and this is being developed further in Fedora 11 to cover Intel and Nvidia cards as well. Plymouth supports a flexible and powerful plug-in system which can be used to create Plymouth themes. Fedora includes several of them including a simple progress bar and the solar plugin. Now additional work is being done to improve many things and this will land up in Fedora 11 as well.

Instead of working on this kind of crap, why can't they focus on things that are more important from a usability point of view ?

Rhetoric question, why submitting this offtopic comment just for the sake of it? Should you find other issues important, why not working on them given the experience with Gentoo distribution, proposing a patch for upstream which may benefit to other users and quietly leave this topic alone?
