Hi Stephen,

I know that comment, such as the one I made, is very subjective. In 
response to your question, If I look at the lightdm greeter for xubuntu 
and lubuntu 14.04, I find the lubuntu layout to be lighter colors, 
better graphic on the user icon. The dark color that are used on xubuntu 
see, IHMO, very outdated. Don't get me wrong, I like xubuntu and run it 
on several older systems. But, the darkness of the overall package is 
and has been a put off – like it's stuck in the 90's and that aesthetics 
is always the lowest priority.

To get around this I have always installed the unity-greeter.  But, today I happened to install Lubuntu 14.04 and was surprised to see their login greeter looking much nicer.
