Newcomers to Linux and other FOSS systems have a new phenomena to digest. As opposed to proprietary operating systems, FOSS operating systems give you your choice of desktop environments and window managers.

But which one to choose? That's the question I've written these pages to help the user decide. This is a brief overview of the various interfaces you may run on top of the X graphical desktop.

Topics include:

KDE
Gnome
Xfce
Enlightenment
Blackbox
Fluxbox
TWM
Window Maker
FVWM
IceWM
Ratpoison
