exactly, but it would be handy to define what "desktop" is.
could someone provide me a definition?
is X server alone a desktop? i think no.
is KDE a desktop? i think yes from what i heard.
is XFCE a desktop? i think too.
so is my X server+fvwm2 having no visible icons, windows, frames etc. (but
having a menu under keypress) a desktop or not?
if yes - then we can define desktop as any software able to run graphics
mode programs on graphics capable machine. like bash or csh for text
if no - what part of say KDE make it a desktop?
i'm not trying to start any war, just want to hear a definition of so
commonly used term today.
