Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The Hardy Heron Roadmap has over 130 new ideas that have been proposed thus far. I've examined each one of these ideas in detail, threw out the ones that weren't interesting to me, wrote an explanation for each, and sorted the list into three categories: user experience; networking and security; support."

Well sometimes things that are proposed for a certain version in the specs don't get implemented until two or three versions later. So they eventually do show up, but they take their time about it. It can be annoying but it all works itself out in the end.

Hopefully slickboot will actually show this time. They've done some work on it already by reducing the amount of switching to only two (I don't count grub). I'm hoping that they finally realize that usplash is a dead end and will probably never be up to the task of being a competent splash manager. Something like fbsplash or gensplash would probably look better, though I think Splashy is the way to go. I guess they really don't have to get complicated with the splash, they can do something simple and clean like OSX, bootsplash -> splash with throbber -> display manager. It should be simple enough to emulate. Basically start gdm early and end it late (until the desktop finishes loading if possible).
