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."

hmmm, clearly you have been reading the wrong discussions.

The clipboards in Gnome and KDE are not the same as an X clipboard.

Gnome and KDE are the desktop environments, if you were to using one of these desktops and tried to copy and paste between applications, you would be using the Gnome or KDE clipboard.

X on the otherhand is the underlying "Window Manager" and as such, should not have a clipboard service made available to applications already inside a desktop environment.
