What happened to the "Other.." user?

in macOS edited January 2014
I have that login window option enabled on my tower, but I can't find the switch to toggle it on/off! I don't have it enabled on my iMac. Where is it!? I assumed it would be under System Preferences --> Accounts...

    Not quite. I still want the list, but with the "Other..." selection in that list. I'd like to be able to use the "&gt;console" feature without having to use the "Name and Password" deal.

    I got my "Other" user back by enabling the root account.

    Me too, I believe that's how you do it in Jaguar.

    Nonsuch and Xaqtly are correct. You have to enable one of the other accounts, such as root, to get that option.

    Agreed. For some reason I had to re-enable the root account after upgrading to Jaguar. Strange?! Then the Other... came back.
