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.

I don't mind them beautifying the startup (even though I prefer the text based startup of old).

But what I would really like is if Metacity could be fixed. Basic functionality should be a priority. Especially in a window manager.

I don't know if a bug has been filed, I don't know how to do it myself.

But basically here is the problem. It doesn't remember the unmaximised windows size. I am using Firefox, I click the maximise button. If I press F11 to go fullscreen and then later exit fullscreen. Metacity thinks that window size should be that dimensions of a maximised window.

I have had this occurring for a long time and I wonder if others have the same issue.

No problem here. I've tested it with a firefox window that was in 2 different sizes. I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 here. If I remember, I'll test it with Fedora 10 later.
