Just to toss in my $0.02.

I have always preferred bootsplash over rhgb simply because with
bootsplash you never see any console output, you go straight from the
grub/lilo somewhat-graphical display to a perdy graphical boot.  With
rhgb you tend to see a fair amount of console gibberish before the
splash fires up.
