I like the new gdm theme as it further simplifies that login screen. A
screen which IMHO should be as simple as possible while still being
useful. The new splash screen is quite nice and it's refreshing to see
a different style of splash screen. I am not crazy about the
borderless windows though. I prefer borders on my windows, I like the
old windows with the border. Although I am pretty sure this is mostly
a by-product of using clearlooks since it is bordeless by default.

And... I usually get sick of my desktop background after a while but I
am really liking sparkle and it still on my desktop :)

All-in-all, I like the changes for the most part. Nice work!
