Differences gnome, kde, etc & x-windows
The worst part or problem is that I don't know one from the other and how x-windows gets involved. I don't mind reading up on it, but can't really find a good place that doesn't expect you to know about each. Point me to a good document(s) or explain the difference good or bad of each.
I've had display problems and am always asked 'which desktop', which I can't really say. I've watched the loading more closely and have what seems is gnome for a desktop.
How can you tell which, can you intermix and is x-windows the underlaying controlling application for any/all of these?

My personal choice if I want something lite that only eats up around 130-160MB of RAM then either Xfce or MATE works well and they're both easy to get around on.
If I don't mind using 400-500MB of RAM then GNOME 3.12 is my choice and it's what I'm currently using.No matter where ya' go, there ya' are.
