For snappiness/speed AND functionality, you can't beat the IceWM / iDesktop / ROX-filer combo!

uhh are the window manager and desktop environment switched!?

I recall GDM as a Window Manager whereas Fluxbox would be a Desktop Environment...

Fluxbox is a window manager in my view. KDE, Gnome, and XFCE are the major DE's though I believe Enlightenment will qualify once DR17 is released. I *think* that as of 16.7 it is still really a wm.

I haven't used enlightenment in several years. I'm still not truly sold on any of them... I like aspects of each which I think is the reason I lean toward flux.

I understand your reasoning on the WM/DE. I agree.

I would say IceWM is the WM of the year

lg_alucard 02-08-2005 07:58 PM

I think fluxbox is a WM, it only controlls the click menu and a slit...

Polls over folks.

But, yeah, fluxbox is not, never was, and hopefully never will be in any way a desktop - pure wm. GDM is a login manager - Gnome is the desktop with metacity (or whatever) for a window manager.

Though it is true the poll's still wrong as me and s_deepak_123 and ylikone know. ;)

What is a 'wm' ?
 
Hi can anyone tell me what exacty a WM is?


Isn't something like Fluxbox and KDE/Gnome the same?

Flux is considered a WM but KDE and Gnome is a DE...

Can someone describe me the difference when differentiating between WM and DE ...


Thanks.
