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
entry, perhaps.

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
my eyes. 

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
use it.
