and laptops, which is also where hibernation is mostly used... so.
I'm not sure whether it works everywhere, but splashy works 100% in my Dell Latitude D510, including hibernation.
I also love the fact that the disk encryption password is asked without ever leaving the splash screen, which is IMO part of a really great desktop experience. Last I checked, usplash would fall you back to the text console in order to ask for a LUKS password.
