10.3: Use a more secure screen lock alternative
Authored by: Anonymous on Nov 05, '03 09:42:30PM

No it's not. A lot of applications pick up your long username automatically and it is pain to have to manually type in your surname every time.

Perhaps Apple could have thought through their UI design a bit better - allowing the short name or user picture to be shown instead of the long name, for example. I know several people whose only complaint about Fast User Switching is the ridiculous amount of space it takes up in the menu bar.

10.3: Use a more secure screen lock alternative
Authored by: okai on Nov 05, '03 11:21:32PM

Huh? Did you really try what I'd suggested? My FSU menu only show a shortened name (4 letters) that I changed from the default full name (10 letters). Yes, I changed the default full name in the name field, that appears atop, at the accounts pref pane just as the same as the user name field, which is the second field. So, the first field, "Name" field, which defaults to your full name is being used for FSU menu and you can change that field as you like. So, shorten your name there. That's the end of it.
