Sure, I always mix the "window manager" and "GUI toolkit" terms. Yes this
might be the way... This deserve a little explanation that some Atari user
(like me ;)) omits sometime. I feel the terms known from Linux the
following way:

Window manager ... AES
GUI Toolkit    ... CFLib, MyDials, and other GUI component libs.
Desktop        ... Thing, Jinnee, etc...

Is this correct?
