Sure it is new, but let's not stress out our users too much. Through GPO (group policy objects) we can bring back the control + alt + delete to logon that we go used to in XP. There are also several other options that will improve security such as clearing last username, and creating a warning message at logon.
Do you want a custom background for your logon? Default Domain? Classic logon?
Using GPO editor ...
Go to computer -> administrative templates -> system -> logon
