51 Choosing a Display Manager or Desktop Environment is highly subjective.
52 The choice depends on the look and feel of the packages, the resources
53 (memory and disk space) required, and the utilities included.

57 In this chapter, the installation instructions of some Display Managers
58 are presented. Later in the book, you will find other ones, which are
59 provided as part of some Desktop Environments.
