There is a problem when you keep removing important functionality, the GNOME team found that out the hard way.

Multi-seat is the best Linux feature I've ever seen, btw, and I cannot imagine computing without it.
It is the default for Kubuntu 12.10. It suits my needs, but has an annoying trait. When you highlight the wanted user, you HAVE to click the password entry field to type the password. Not a big deal, but annoying. The Ubuntu lightdm greeter automatically focuses on the password entry field.
Tab is a bit better but I agree:

I was wrong about my focus complaint as shown here: http://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthr...rd-field-focus The password entry field is automatically focused on the last used account. All you have to do is start typing. I just assumed since there was no blinking cursor, that it wasn't focused.
and that is exactly why KDM should not fuck around with a bootloader and should start serving its purpose better or be replaced with something like this LightDM thing :)
