Booting without plymouth is faster.
Once kernel has booted a small amount of time is saved additionally by not
needing to display fancy graphics.

Ironically, booting with splash on can be faster for some hw/drivers.
On vesafb where scrolling init messages usually mean a full repaint,
they can be much more of a penalty than updating a measly progress bar
bbox. :)

If you would have tried it, you would have noticed, that with the current
default, but plymouth uninstalled, there is no
scrolling init messages.
There is not any output at all apart from kernel error messages.
Default setting is "quiet" on the kernel command line.

Even without "quiet", systemd is not putting out lots of information, only one
line per service, so you will hardly
notice lots of scrolling with vesafb (well, maybe if you have 640x400 vesafb
mode, but there scrolling should be
reasonably fast again).

Try it. Present numbers, not alternative facts.
