I do this on my main desktop, which is a big and beefy machine.

The problem I have with it is that the menus get really padded out with 
all the different apps, and one has to make a definite choice between 
KDM and GDM, which can impinge on functionality (I use KDM, and can't 
shutdown the computer directly from Gnome; I have to log out first).

Are many people running multiple *buntus on one machine? Finding m/any 

I'd really like to see Ubuntu make a push and get the desktops playing 
nicely with each other.
