I never install gdm/xdm/kdm. I've tested them for the book, but I never
use them myself. I have much more control at the command line and
typing startx is easy. How often do you reboot a solid system?
Oops, its been 152 times for me -- since Nov 29 19:38:58 2005.
Looking in more detail, that's 95 times where the time between reboots
is more than an hour or about once every 20 days on average.
