    I do not know if your joking, but this, in my opinion, is a step backwards. Ubuntu 9.04 boot up screens are much better. This is not lovely it is ugly!

    Are you serious? 9.04 Boot up screen is fugly… The new one looks cleaner and simpler…

  5. Rue U says:

    I disagree I think this is cool. The only thing that I can say 9.04 had in booting is the linear and slimdowned loading bar during the bootsplash. Though, the GDM login screen sucked. The one in 9.10 is 10 times better than anything I’ve seen previously. It looks highly professional and works great.

    So now we have to click the mouse then switch to the keyboard to enter a password? Or can we select a user with the keyboard too?

    I love it, very nice, It so better than High Contrasted orange.

    I think the bootsplash in 9.04 is far better.

    Nice. I’m curious , if anyone can tell me if this will also be what we see in Netbook Remix.

    Does anyone know ?

    I really like the new Ubuntu-Look! Not only the Login-Screen but also the original Desktop-Wallpaper. Much better than all that brown of the last versions…

  11. Liane says:

    @Eddie C: I think it will. Should be the same artwork plus the Netbook Remix packages (maximus, launcher..)

    We went from a really sexy login screen in 9.04 to a super ugly one in 9.10. I wonder how can I get my old login screen back? There are too few options in GDM config tool.

  13. Z says:

    Would like to have 9.04-like features too.
    I really miss the simple, bling-free progress bar and the keyboard-only login.
    Showing the available user names is a security issue too!

    @Z: There’s probably a way to not show the usernames and show a text box, but I agree.
