    Something you folks have to take a look at. I have never used the Windows XP Welcome Screen until now. Always had the classic 2k style logon enabled...until I saw this login screen:

    It's a modified version of the Longhorn Slate screen, and it just looks so sec-seh, yet professional. Loving it so far.

    Check it out here

    Well it kinda looks like the Autorun for Longhorn 4051.

    Hellooooooo! Anyone in there? Maybe because it's a Longhorn slate theme'd login...

    Looks nice. Wish I could use it! I can't use it because I'm on a domain :(

    The real one's just ugly. This one looks so much better with the drop shadow.

    Hmm...unfortunately, it's kinda buggy. :(
    Didn't notice it at first, but the when you shutdown/restart etc. you just get a blank logout screen without any text.

    Guess I'm back to the 2k style until a fixed release.
