X11, Window Managers Apparently, my article a few days ago caused a bigger stir than I had anticipated, not at all unrelated to the fact that my wordings may not have been optimal. So, let me clarify things a bit.

You clearly have no idea how the "supply chain" for modern Linux desktops work. The source projects themselves do not distribute and configure for end users (at least not in a practical sense).

The distro decides which parts of GNOME and which applications to bundle for the end user. The DISTRO is the OEM. Not the people who design pieces of the software that will be used in a distribution.

These are the things that you should know, before you being to speak about what's going on.

You really don't have a clue.
