XSplash is a software project in the Ubuntu community that uses the X Window System to replace the scrolling-text screens that appear while booting a Linux-based computer with a graphical splash screen.

XSplash replaced usplash, which uses the Linux framebuffer in Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala", bringing Ubuntu closer to its goal of a 10-second boot time in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid Lynx". The improved boot performance over usplash and other boot systems is achieved by prioritizing startup processes related to the X server, and by using a single X server throughout the boot process.[1]
