AAMOF, the installer will probably BE the wm for the install.  We should
include a couple window managers, namely enlightenment, afterstep, twm(for
the memory conscious), fvwm, fvwm95, etc.  Not everyone wants the same
interface as Win95.  AAMOF, a friend of mine that just installed linux on
his Win95 box asked me about an interface that mimicked NeXTSTEP, and was
quite enthused at hearing about afterstep.(He got a good chuckle off the
name, too)

If the kernel doesn't say a word about mice, we try to read position data
from a serial mouse.
