In my first install Lucid 64 generic, the boot was graphical and well 
done without any trouble. In beta 1, ati 3D drivers were excellent. The 
decrease started with the beta 2 and the release candidate.

For video editing, and at the same time audio editing, it's more 
interesting to have an nvidia graphic card than an ati one, due to the 
bad 3D proprio drivers not available in RT kernel.

But the boot splash screen sequence is another trouble.
