Will Ubuntu continue using that old (GNOME 2.X) login screen, or create its own, or there will be a new one in Gnome 3?

GDM was totally rewritten just recently, so it isn't the old GNOME 2 login screen... –  JanC Nov 1 '10 at 20:49

There's an intention to replace GDM with LightDM in Natty+1; some details here. As things stand, LightDM is set to be in Universe in Natty and usable as a GDM alternative, but the default will be GDM.

Unity is based on Gnome, so I suppose that Ubuntu will continue to use Gnome Display Manager (GDM).
