This is called freedom. Bootsplash has been a great eye-candy application in the Linux arena but now it's time to say goodbye.
I just tried splashy and its a charm. The great thing is that it doesn't need a patched kernel. So newbies or people who don't prefer to rollout their own kernel can use splashy and have a clean boot up.
I had always had failures with Software Suspend 2 (swsusp2) on my laptop because of which I had a perception that it really wasn't ready for use for beta users also. But recently after reading the comments of many users on LWN I felt how wrong I actuall was.
Anyways, setting up swsusp2 with root/swap on LVM is a little tricky. From my past experience I've felt that to be the major reason for me to not able to use this excellent feature.
It really is amazing to see no more spam coming to my blog.
Kudos to the Pivot team who've done a great job integrating spam features into this great software.
Also the spam cleanup utility (integrated into the application) is excellent.
