Besides eye-candy, Plymouth also handles user interaction during boot.
Plymouth was first included in Fedora 10 "Cambridge" shipped on November 25, 2008 where it replaced Red Hat Graphical Boot (RHGB). Ubuntu includes it in the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid Lynx" release shipped on April 29, 2010. Mandriva switched from Splashy to Plymouth with version Adélie (2010.0).
Its development began in May 2007 and is being carried out under the leadership of Ray Strode. However, there was little support for this project until early 2008, when the decision to introduce Plymouth into Fedora 10 gave a boost to the development, which is now in full bloom. Since then, Plymouth has been introduced in Mandriva Linux 2010.0 and is also introduced in Ubuntu 10.04, as well as in KDE neon.
