Re: Can Debian's paranoia be tamed

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.
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.

Of course, I respect the fact people use it, but if someone could explain me why, I would be happy to learn.
