Description Simon Goodall 2007-04-24 10:03:21 UTC
Description of problem:
It is not clear that the text saying "Fedora Live CD" is actually the username
you can click on to log into the system with. I originally thought it was some
title text.
I discovered that you can log in as root without a password before I realised
that there was a user list.
Perhaps you should auto login, or somehow highlight the part of the interface to
click on to login. E.g. a border or login photo? Maybe a big arrow?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC7 Test 3 Live CD

The Fedora logo _is_ the login photo for the Fedora user...
I guess that doesn't really help.

I think what we ended up for the Fedora 7 final release is a lot clearer.  If
not, we're open to suggestions for the future.
