Re: Exploring the recent QT open source issue.
I am one of many who support an international academic institute. One thing I am
truly pleased about in our system is the ability for kdm (KDE's version of the xdm
login manager) to offer a selection of window managers at login time. This allows
users to select their prefered window manager.
I believe it would be a nice feature if such functionality was the default in
Debian. As window managers are installed onto a system, they become available to the
user at login time. This would be similar to the Debian menu system where each
application automatically becomes available when it is installed.
I say, let the users decide what manager to run.
