You really need to read the Unix-Hater's handbook.
"X was designed to run three programs: xterm, xload, and xclock.
Ten years later, most computers running X run just four programs:
xterm, xload, xclock and a window manager."
Of course, that was in 1994. Things have improved dramatically since
then; I'm running xterm, xdaliclock, a window manager, and a web
browser, for example.
