Your console login screen has been hijacked by xdm which is a display
manager (window manager picker in a graphical face), not a window
manager itself. You need to (as root):
apt-get install <window manager of your choice>
Heck, install them all and play around. That's what I did and I still
change from time to time.
In addition, if you want to lose the graphical login (as root):
apt-get remove xdm

A: Apart from the fact that viruses are supported by their authors,
use optimized, small code and usually perform well, none.
