    Multi-Interface Boot Option?


    Anyone know of a distro that would go something like this?":

    Splash screen shows up.
    Log-on page comes up.
    User logs one.
    Dialog box comes up and says,
    "Would you like to boot in Gnome, KDE or XFCE?

    Let me know if you know of a distro that does that.
    I so very much like different parts of all three, and
    I was thinking with a two DVD set that might be
    possible. Anyway, if any sightings occur, drop
    me a line.

    KDM also offers desktop environment and window manager options at start time, if you have the extra DEs/WMs installed.

    Ah, well I didnt know that.

    You might want to take a look at xnest.

    Then you can run xfce and gnome and kde at the same time.. ^^

    I think some of the various installation DVDs do come with multiple DE/WM options, but I'm personally not a big fan of mixing them on the same system, even though I too like certain aspects of all of them.
