Sudden resemblence to WinXP?

Whenever my screen locks (e.g. from my screen saver or from manually locking) and I go to unlock, I'm told to press CTRL+ALT+Del, and it says it's displaying that so the login screen doesn't get spoofed.

When logging out, I get a window saying it's saving my settings.

Both of these remind me of WinXP. The CTRL+ALT+Del thing is of WinNT (XP is based on NT).

Is there a way to turn this off?

Also, if the CTRL+ALT+Del thing is used for unlocking, why not too for logging in?
