I wouldn't say we "hide" the desktop. There is no "desktop" ala KDE, GNOME,
etc. included with LinHES. Our goal is a simple MythTV appliance. Why use a
desktop which will use more resources than a simple Window Manager? LinHES
uses fluxbox as it's default WM. With the release of 7.3, one will
optionally be able to choose Enlightenment or WindowMaker. When LinHES
starts, mythfrontend will automatically start (or mythwelcome if chosen).

Enjoy the day,
