Which Distros have Cool login Screens?


Sometimes in movies with a hacking theme, I see many cool login screens. I know most of them are CGI types.

I dabble with linux Mint and they have some cool login themes to choose from. Do you know any other distros that have cool login themes to choose from?

+1, with some addenda:

delete your WM altogether. elinks is fun. mplayer has framebuffer output. wear an eye patch; you have to look dangerous also. always mutter things about how the RAM is cycling in insufficient stages in the virtual user space paradox. try a various hats.
