I'm no UI designer, but something about that black/plymouth time ratio seems off
Same here for me with 12.04.

But in fedora 17 it works flawlessly on the same machine. When I boot fedora 17, immediately after grub I get the nice high res fedora plymouth spash for the rest of the boot, then is smoothly transisitons to gdm. SO MUCH SMOOTHER than ubuntu's boot process.

Fedora has had this working well for the past few releases, while ubuntu's boot has looked pretty bad for quite some time.
