Some Ubuntu Freebies
Here are some toys that may be of interest to Ubuntu users.

Plymouth Splash Themes
In the early days of computing, starting up the machine filled your screen with lines and lines of gibberish that was of
little use to the typical end user. It was simply something that had to be endured until the machine was ready to use.
But a means was eventually devised to hide such screen 'noise' and now animated 'splash themes' with branding and
logos and startup progress indication have become the norm. It has also become relatively easy to entertain oneself
with a 'custom' splash theme during those few seconds before the computer is ready for use, and again at shutdown.
Here are the few that I have devised:

Atom    Force    Atom + Force    Atom 2    Fanboy    Ubuntu Rain    Gort    Thingamabob    Home    Orb    Plasma    Slice    Lite

Other splash themes can be found at websites such as Gnome-Look.org.

Users booting from SSDs should waste no time with these themes. Duration will be too short to be appreciated.
