So it's deprecated in Mageia GNU/Linux?  OK.  If I were a Mageia user (or
had ever heard of it before today) that might carry some weight with me.

Just curious, what are Mageia users expected to use instead of startx if
they want to start a traditional X session from a console?  Or is that
no longer a supported configuration at all?  (By traditional, I mean
a ~/.xsession or ~/.xinitrc file that contains "exec twm" or whatever
window manager you prefer.)

Did they simply throw every window manager under the bus and say "Nope,
sorry, you gotta run a desktop environment now"?
