When you've removed it, you simply type startx. It's just another
widget to make linux more like windows... hence the disgust. I am still
reeling from all the individual processes in Linux and the large
quantity of bootstraping scripts. I don't want any clearly unnecessary
processes or scripts running, or ran at boot. Why? 'cause I still
don't understand this thing... but I know I don't need xdm.
