The Artists' Guide to the Linux Desktop—Part IV

Series Summary

So there you have it. A few other window managers are probably out there, but we've covered all the ones with any serious following on Linux. Using a window manager of your own choice isn't too difficult, even if you plan on using GNOME or KDE, since most window managers either already do or will soon support the two primary Linux desktop environments. Your choice will be based more on what you want to look at and how much hardware you have on which to run it. In the end, the key is that you have a choice, and that leaves you in control of your desktop.
