    I want to go back to the classic login, but everything I tried did not work.
    Tried policy edit no luck.

    You can disable fast user switching by going to gpedit ...

    Administrative Templates -> System -> Logon -> Hide entry points for Fast
    User Switching = Enabled

    If you find a way to get a classic login box, let me know. :p

    Both don't seem to work in the RTM release.

    I found that answer to have a single user logon screen.

    Administrative Tools_> Local Security Policy
    Then go to the Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options and
    in the right hand pane find the "Interactive Logon: Do not Display last user

    Enable that policy and logoff and give it a try.

    Someone else mentioned if you want the control-alt-del behaviour go to start
    then type: "control user passwords2". On the main tab you can require users
    to enter name and password (not sure if that is required for the first thing
    I mentioned to work). On the advanced page you can find the option to
    require ctrl-alt-del.
