"In this first of a two-part series, William Wong takes a look at some of the more common alternative desktops, including CDE, FVWM, AfterStep, WindowMaker, and XFce."

"If you've installed Linux lately, you've probably encountered one of three interfaces: command line, KDE, or GNOME. (Hint: Two are graphical.)"

"Bash and suites servers deliver the typical command-line interface just fine, but on the desktop it's as much in demand as a 14-inch monochrome monitor. Luckily, graphical desktops are here to stay, and you don't have to live with just the two popular choices. In fact, dozens of desktop interfaces run on X Window, the de facto graphical underpinning of Linux."
