Linux systems use the X-windows system as its graphical interface. X windows systems are built on a number of components, and the way that input focus and window controls are done is actually outsourced to a type of program called a "window manager".
In the great Unix and now Linux tradition, there is more than one way to do things, and different people will want to do things differently.
At this talk, a number of different window managers will be evangelized by devotees of each. The evening will start with an overview of how window managers and X-windows interact.
