11 <title>Window Managers</title>
13 <para>
14 Window Managers and Desktop Environments are the primary user
15 interfaces into the <application>X</application> Window System. A window
16 manager is a program that controls the appearance of windows and provides
17 the means by which the user can interact with them. A Desktop Environment
18 provides a more complete interface to the operating system, and provides a
19 range of integrated utilities and applications.

22 <para>
23 There are many Window Managers available. Some of the more well
24 known ones include <application>fvwm2</application>, <application>Window
25 Maker</application>, <application>AfterStep</application>,
26 <application>Enlightenment</application>,
27 <application>Sawfish</application>,
28 and <application>Blackbox</application>.

31 <para>
32 The Desktop Environments available for Linux are
33 <application>GNOME</application>, <application>KDE</application>, and
34 <application>XFce</application>.

38 Choosing a Window Manager or Desktop Environment is highly
39 subjective. The choice depends on the look and feel of the packages, the
40 resources (RAM, disk space) required, and the utilities included. One web
41 site that provides a very good summary of what is available, screenshots,
42 and their respective features is

48 <para>
49 In this chapter, the installation instructions of several Window
50 Managers and one lightweight Desktop Environment are presented. Later in
51 the book, both <application>KDE</application> and
52 <application>GNOME</application> have their own sections.
