Description Brian "netdragon" Bober 2004-04-09 12:58:53 EDT
I would like something like the Windows XP Task Manager to be brought
up when you press CTRL+ALT+DEL while in X. Right now, all that is
brought up is a virtually useless Login, Logout thing that you can get
from the Gnome Panel. A Task Manager would be useful for two reasons:
The first to end a program, like a frozen fullscreen application, and
the second to start a program, like restart nautilus when it freezes.

Right now, you can kill an application by pressing CTRL+ALT+F4 then
doing a "killall" command.

If you took something like "System Monitor" already on your system,
added a "Start new application" text box and button, along with adding
a "Log Out" entry to it that brought up the thing that normally comes
up now when you press CTRL+ALT+DEL, then it'd be very useful and would
also help people in migration over from Windows XP.

Whatever you do, if you ever do something for this, please make it
something that other distros can pick up and use, especially LindowsOS.

Maybe there is already something out there, and you need only
integrate it into Fedora.
