Tested on my PII, 400MHz, 256MB ram. This gdm theme is good looking on
that old system. It is as fast/slow as the other themes. The icons on
top centered on the screen, a side effect of aligning them to the login
The login is offset to the left of center and looks good. All the text
is very readable (thanks). The CAPS-LOCK notice is great! Also like the
way it tells me immediately I forgot the name on login. I no longer
have to hit enter or type a password when I forgot to type the name.
The icons on top brighten a bit when hovered over, but the light up
when selected is great! I know which one I hit, without wondering. The
pop-up boxes for language and session come up faster then standard
themes. It is almost instantaneous on the old machine.
The login timer for automatic timed logins is visible without straining
I also installed this on my work machine. Athlon 64, 2.2GHz, 3 GB ram.
It looks better on it, but I also have it connected to an LCD.
All in all, a very nice theme here. If there are no objections, let us
