Classic logon prompt will be back in Vista

May 7th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

I’ve had word that in some editions of Vista of which the classic logon prompt is best suited, will end up appearing and being the default way to logon. In such versions as Vista Home Basic and Vista Home Premium, the “Welcome” screen will appear for the user to select their credentials and then logon. However what we may see in Vista Enterprise and possibly even Vista Business, is a new classic logon prompt that is best suited to domains and larger enterprises.

Below on the left is the Welcome screen that can be seen in 5365 and above, and on the right is a concept of what the classic prompt may look like in the final versions of Vista Enterprise and Vista Business.

    That Classic log on dialog is a security risk, it is not suppose to show who is logged on in the, especially if its a Public computer in a library for example on a Domain or remotely connected. If Classic log on is coming back (and I pray to God is does come back), just let be like the XP or 2000 Classic log on.

    Zack, what did I preach to you about misinterpreting my responses? I did not have any bad sentiments or anger in my message, just giving you a real world perspective of the dangers of having something like that. Its too crowded too, not everybody in a Domain are 20 somethings (oops, there I go again), but a lot of people would be confused by it.
