Desktop Managers


Gnome (http://www.gnome.org) is a Desktop and Session Manager. Metacity is a Window Manager. KDE (http://www.kde.org) is a Gnome alternative and WindowMaker and Enlightenment and Sawfish are alternatives to Metacity.

The LBX (Low Bandwidth X) server extension is useful for increasing the responsiveness of remote X applications. Remote Emacs windows are now being delivered to my desktop over a 33 K connection at about 3 times more quickly! (Also more quickly than my LBX connection from MS/Windows/NT using Exceed!)
