I meant whatever is used most on commercial UNIX configurations, like
Solaris or whatever I'd be likely to encounter on a large site.

It appears that CDE is a strictly commercial package, so I won't be
using that.

How hard is it to _uninstall_ window managers and desktops?

Confronted with bewildering choices, I have Xfce downloading now; it
looked clean in the screen shots and apparently it doesn't require many
resources.

KDE looks awfully heavy and adolescent and I don't know that I'm
interested in something that tries so hard to be like Windows.
