lightDM? No thanks! (and a side order of fries)

Aside from the fact that It invokes an instance of Chromium (runlevel2?) with root permissions...
(inviting vulnerabilities)(one has already been discovered, documented, and patched)

...that Chromium instance adds 30Mb overhead to a session, from the outset!

Re: lightDM? No thanks! (and a side order of fries)

I've stayed away from lightDM so far because pam is a hard dependency.  Coming from a slackware-based distro, I'm not excited about trying to implement that.  So, it's SLiM for me, or maybe lxdm  smile

By chromium, I think you mean the use of webkit for the greeter. AIUI there are alternative greeters that are gtk (or qt) based. Unless, I've misunderstood lightdm's description from its homepage.
