I am getting a white screen after startup in Lubuntu 15.04 and I do not know if this is by design or if it is a bug. It clears away from a mouse click to reveal the login window. It reminds me of the Windows 8.1 start screen which acts in a similar way, though I have no idea why it would be a white screen with mouse cursor - it just seems wrong.
