[ubuntu-art] Suggestion

To be honest, I would be OK with just a graphical enchantment to the booting screen. Not to take it away from the logo + looping loading dots concept, but to make it visually more pleasing to look at. After all it's a process where the user is required to wait and just look at it, so it might as well be good to look at.

I would design something myself, but I need the new Ubuntu logo. Can anyone provide me with a high-resolution .PNG, or similar with the new Ubuntu logo on it? Speaking of which, the artwork wiki should also provide the new logo.

Thank you

Speaking of "not knowing progress", I find the current Plymouth behavior 
looks like a "deranged" progress bar, rather than like an "undefined" 
boot progress indicator.  See my comments here:


(Since top-posting seems to be the norm here, I shall follow that trend.)
