I'd like to add that the hideous boot sequence is not just a problem for
UbuStu.  For many graphics cards, including the ATI on my desktop, the Lucid
boot sequence will only show in the lowest resolution, and with all sorts of
command line text showing up.  It is not pretty at all.  It is apparently
due to the proprietary drivers (which in the case of ATI, is often the only
one that will correctly render 3D, or even work at all) causing issues with
suspend and resume, or something.  Whatever the reason, it's a bad bug that
will show up on lots of systems and make the splash screen an eyesore.  It's
a shame it ended up in the LTS.
