Because actually it's a SECURITY thing. Apart from anything else...Zaphod Beeblebrox said:And even more than that, a system configured for auto login allows
parallelization of tasks. Start system, do other things while system
starting and logging in, return to system when tasks done, use system. If
auto login isn't configured, you have to wait for system to reach login
screen, log in, wait for system to finish startup before you can use it.
Personally, I don't use it for my workstations, but I can see the

cares, is beyond me.
Yes but when you choose that option on install it says "NOT RECOMMENDED" inAlias said:Ubuntu does. I booted it up today, went for some coffee, and when I got
back, the desktop was there waiting and ready to use.
Granted, it's also relatively easy on Windows as well, but at least itI guess it would be useful if you're afraid that someone will have
physical access to your computer. Course, with Linux, changing a log on
password is very easy if you have physical access. So, how does logging on
automatically create a security risk?

Heck, I'm such a lousy typist that it's hundreds of times *per login*
You are losing credibility with those claims...Once a day. Jeeeze.....
If you start up your computer LOTS of times a day a) it uses lots more
electricity than if you just keep it running and b) places excessive wear on
parts like the disk heads...
I'd go along with that Gordon.Yes but when you choose that option on install it says "NOT RECOMMENDED" in

Granted, it's also relatively easy on Windows as well, but at least it
deters the casual "ooh let's see what we can find on this machine" type of

they put out new ones I wait a few days to see if they screwed something

then find out something no longer works, and have to wait for MS to fix,
what they screwed up.
