Description Need Real Name 2007-09-14 11:30:20 EDT
The installer looks stunning, even the grub kernel screen looks great.
The graphical boot sequence looks great, then comes the face browser gdm screen
- it's awful. It doesn't match the rest of the system at all.

There have been some design iterations for a new login screen theme on the art
list.  You may want to check the archives.

Máirín is going to be implementing the designs, but hasn't done it yet, afaik.

Reassigning and adding to F8Blocker

The designs at http://mso.fedorapeople.org/gdm/ look a lot closer to the rest of
the desktop (apart from the huge Session, Language, Shutdown options). Thanks.
