Mind you, it's not as if X-Windows suddenly turns Linux into MacOS. Most
windows managers don't provide flashy icons for everything, so you end up
executing most things from Xterms. These days I mostly use X as a platform
for lots of xterms. Plus the odd Xemacs window (which also doesn't get
vastly easier to use in a windowing environment), and the odd graphical
