Ubuntu 10.04 upgrade

I have upgraded all 3 my PCs from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04. The upgrade process went fine on all of them. I had problem with my htpc, though.. After the upgrade it could not connect to my wireless network. I have found out that both NetworkManager and wicd were installed after the upgrade and probably they had a problem with each other. I am using wicd on 2 my PCs but had this problem only on one of them.
There are people claiming they can boot in something like 10 seconds, but that's not my case, even though my laptops are not so old (Dell D630, Dell XPS M1530).
Ubuntu 10.04 features the new splash thing called Plymouth, which should "run very early in the boot process". This is not what I observe, in fact most of the boot time the screen is blank, the splash screen displays late and only for a very short time.
