    1. b - TCSH is a shell. The rest are GUIs.
    2. c - UDE is an old GUI. Compiz could be used with many desktop environments, but it is very commonly used with Unity.
    3. d - Unity uses a lot of RAM compared to most GUI systems, so Unity should not be used in embedded or light-weight systems.

    Great job Primit1v3! I knew I could stump someone with UDE. Linux has many desktop environments and window managers.

    Notice that I have "GUI/desktop-environment". Ratpoison can be run by itself (I have not tried it myself yet).
