In modernity, we don't tend to install our own window manager. We just accept the default and might not even know what a window manager is, never mind which one it is and what it does. There may come a time when you want to know which window manager you're using and this article gives you a couple of ways to do that. It's not particularly difficult, but it is something folks may eventually want to know.

Yes, the URL ends in a 'u' instead of 'using'. I blame WordPress, which ate the title, didn't publish when triggered, and then didn't update the URL. It is what it is. I could fix that, but I'm not going to.
