Now correct me if I'm wrong but to switch desktops as he says (window managers
actually) one needs to log out, choose the window manager and log back in?
Alternatively many kde apps can be run in gnome so long as the kde
dependencies are also installed? And pos visa versa? E.g. I'm running Kmail
on a gnome desktop as I type this. Kmail being actually a kde app
