    Linux Boot Process

    Yes, I'm not hiding my code. Very little code completed, I started writing my own DE because it's kind of a school project that i have to do... not that i don't like any DE's. I just wanted to try and write my own since my teacher suggested it..

    Thanks, you're right, it isn't necessary to run a desktop environment.

    Linux Boot Process

    opensource DE? already have some code completed?
    what are the reasons you started writing your own DE but not joined project like xfce in order to improve it? you aren't satisfied by ANY currently available DE?

    step 6 may be finished without DE loading. and you are ready to use your computer there, once you log into console.
    Im running Gentoo Linux with xfce, I always manually do "startxfce4" if I need GUI.
