Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

Hogwash. Just recently (this year IIRC) the X developers were discussing why the clipboard is so broken and what they can do to improve compatibility between applications.


http://refspecs.linux-foundation.org/LSB_3.1.0/LSB-Desktop-generic/...

There are a number of references on the topic of the clipboard.

http://www.linux-foundation.org/en/Products
http://www.linux-foundation.org/en/LSB_Distribution_Status

There shouldn't be any issues with the clipboard on any of those desktop distributions. I'm not sure why X developers would be discussing the desktop's clipboard, in any event.
