still not exactly right. Kde3 is not an OS OR a window manager. It's a desktop environment. It uses the KWin Window manager.

OS's are like Redhat, Mandrake, Debian, etc

Desktop Environments are KDE and Gnome. It's pretty much a full desktop shell.

Window Mangagers are like Kwin, Enlightenment, Fluxbox, Blackbox, Metacity, IceWM, Sawfish, Window Maker, etc. They just manage Windows.

edit: and yes, I use linux. Redhat 8.0, but will switch to Debian one of these days. Now, I am just using the Window Manager Enlightenment without any desktop environment.
