Ok, well, the "all Intel cards" part was under the <rant>. Of course there may 
be those unaffected. But nevertheless, this bug is far from an isolated case 
with one type of hardware or such. It does affect many people with a whole 
range of Intel hardware.

Btw, the plymouth boot didn't work for me out of the box, I still see the 
text-mode progress bar. Did you do anything specific to enable graphical 
boot?
