Here is my opinion on the new boot plus an idea for the gdm:

First, I really like mr.doob's iteration 3. For the GDM I would still
like to see what I suggested before. For the GDM, when you click on the
user, it should use the current background from that user. It should
fade just like when you select a wallpaper for a user. If it were to
fade in when the user was selected, I think it would help to make a
smoother transition into a session. It would also give the illusion
that you are already a step further to a ready desktop when you
click/enter your username. People said it would take away from privacy.
In that case, make an option in gnome-appearance-properties to make it
public or not. Probably a checkbox underneath the style selection. If
the box is checked, it will show during gdm, if not checked, it stays
to whatever it was when no user was selected. I think this would put
our login experience above others. If this is not possible, let me know
and I'll stop suggesting it. But until then, I really want this to
happen. But please remove the glows and the spotlight and use a gradient
like mr.doob. --natewiebe13
