http://chakra-project.org – A quick look at the opposition earlier today and I noticed the new themes in 12.3. Something entirely new is the introduction of what appears to be a boot splash, sitting nicely between grub loading and kdm or ksplash. Still not without interuption (i.e flashes of black screen) but certainly an improvement. (HowTos)
