Should ROS use a generic Log Out screen?

Yes, stick to Microsoft's lead and use a plain option box.

No, I like the idea of using a pretty log out box.

I think everything should be as simple as possible. One user automatically logs in as root and can do anything. Then the shut down process is just one of three buttons, like that XP one, or the xandros one.

Of course advanced users should be able to get whatever functionality they want, but the default setup should be for john q. moron to be able to handle with ease.

Btw the edubuntu window looks a little bit to childish/strange (a common problem of linux guis i think)
those icons are supposed to be childish. edubuntu is a distro to help young kids learn. ubuntu's are similar but more consistant with gnome. but that can be changed based on theme.

this screen seems professional yet friendly/playful.

i like this version of the log off screen.

i still like the ubuntu one better (http://shots.osdir.com/slideshows/origi ... 9&slide=83); it's functional and clean -- also very nice and presentable.

i often use the lock, logout, shutdown and restart options -- very rarely do i use switch user and i never use hibernate.

Yeah, Ubuntu's Logout screen does own.
