Hi guys
Sorry for the lack of emails etc i've been really busy with work, server
installs etc blahblah
anyway from what ive been reading from all the mails, i think depsplash
should be dumped as ubuntu is debian based, usplash looks more promising
thou as for the user space idea and no kernel space, but it interests me
alot as ubuntu is debian based, so thats my little idea into the ring
Later fellas
