'''Display Managers''' are used to provide login screens, and therefore serve as protective security barriers to prevent unauthorised access to your system.


'''Display Managers''' are used to provide login screens, and therefore serve as protective security barriers to prevent unauthorised access to your system. They are also referred to as ''Login Managers''. As with different desktop environments, different display managers will require different system resources to run, and will provide their own unique styles, interfaces, and features. Commonly shared features - particularly in respect to the selection of display managers listed below - include customisation/theming, automatic login, and the selection of multiple desktop environments.
