Re: Can Debian's paranoia be tamed
True, but I always had problems to know in what they are useful? Maybe
to automate distant connection configuration? Most users only use them
as a replacement of getty to start an xsession, I think, and for that
use, I wonder if it is really useful.
Display managers, and particularly window managers and desktop
environments <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desktop_environment> are
often confounded. A window manager is a component of a desktop
environment. Decent desktop environments allow you to use the window
manager of your choice.
Of course, I respect the fact people use it, but if someone could
explain me why, I would be happy to learn.
