window managers vs. desktops


Whats the difference between a desktop (KDE, Gnome) and a window manager (blackbox, window maker)?

desktop environments have their own sets of software, window managers don't. it's best to use window managers if you want speed, and you can still run kde/gnome programs in most window managers.
