What's This on my Screen?

When you first start X, several programs are started. First, the server is started. Then, several clients are usually started. Unfortunately, this is not standardized across various distributions. It is likely that among these clients are a window manager, either fvwm or twm, a prompt, xterm, and a clock, xclock.
