 The Gnome Display Manager is a re-implementation of the well known xdm  GDM is the GNOME Display Manager, it is the little proggie that runs
 program. gdm 2.0beta4 implements all significant features required for  in the background, runs your X sessions, presents you with a login box
 managing local and remote displays.  and then tells you to piss off because you forgot your password. It
   does pretty much everything that you would want to use xdm for, but
 gdm daemon:  doesn't involve as much crack.  It doesn't use any code from xdm, and
  o X Authentication  has a more paranoid and safer design overall.  It also includes many
  o Default and per-display initialization scripts  features over xdm, the biggest one of which is that it is more user
  o Pre and post session scripts  friendly, even if your X setup is failing.  The goal is that users
  o Pluggable Authentication Modules  should never, ever have to use the command line to customize or
  o XDMCP  troubleshoot gdm.  It of course supports xdmcp, and in fact extends
  o TCP Wrappers for access control  xdmcp a little bit in places where I thought xdm was lacking (but is
   still compatible with xdm's xdmcp).
 gdmlogin:  
  o Logo image  
  o Halt and reboot  
  o Iconified login window  
  o Session selection support  
  o Language selection support  
  o Face browser  
   
 gdmchooser:  
  o Visual host browser  
  o Customizable icons
