  GEM - Graphical Environment Manager
GEM (Graphical Environment Manager) was a windowing system created by Digital Research, Inc. (DRI) for use with the CP/M operating system on the Intel 8088 and Motorola 68000 microprocessors.
GEM is known primarily as the graphical user interface (GUI) for the Atari ST series of computers, and somewhat less well known as the operating system for a series of PC-like computers from Amstrad.
Simply changing the environment to point to the printer was all that was needed (in theory) to print, dramatically reducing the developer workload (they formerly had to do printing "by hand" in all applications).

 Windowing system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A windowing system is a graphical user interface (GUI) which implements windows as one of its primary metaphors.
It is normally one part of a larger desktop environment.
From a programmer's point of view, a windowing system implements graphical primitives such as rendering fonts or drawing a line on the screen, effectively providing an abstraction of the graphics hardware.

It had better memory management features (parts of DOS could be loaded in the high memory area, and certain device drivers/TSRs could run in unused parts of the upper memory between 640K and 1M).
GEM (Graphical Environment Manager) was a graphical environment created by Digital Research, Inc. (DRI) for use with CP/M. Subsequent GEM versions were compatible with MS-DOS, and were considered a low-cost alternative to Microsoft Windows.
It had enhanced memory management that allowed parts of DOS, device drivers and TSRs to be moved out of conventional memory on systems with an Intel 286 or later processors and extended or expanded memory.

 The Common Desktop Environment
The user interaction with the application manager is similar to the file manager except that is is intended to be a list of executable modules available to a particular user.
After the initial task of integrating applications so that they fit within session management, further integration can be done to increase their overall common look-and-feel  with the rest of the desktop and to take advantage of the full range of CDE functionality.
If you are selecting a graphical object with a mouse, then it is relatively easy for the window manager to detect this and schedule appropriate actions related to the chosen object.

Using a graphical HDL design entry tool minimizes the errors introduced by passing design information among different teams or members of the same team, because the designers can automatically transfer the information and the verification patterns within a single design environment.
Graphical HDL tools can back up the different steps of the flow and encourage the reuse of data from one step to the other.
Compared with textual C or HDL code, such a graphical representation is easier for the system engineer to debug and for the design team to understand.

 Coding with KParts
The K Desktop Environment, or KDE, is an easy-to-use, open source, graphical environment for Linux/UNIX, available with all Linux distributions.
But even when a component is used only in a single application, the high degree of modularization given by a component architecture makes it easier to work in parallel, and to make sure that the introduction of new features doesn't introduce regressions (for example, the new feature doesn't break the existing features).
It can be graphical, however, like a dialog box or a separate window popping up, or it can be an application-specific plug-in and act on the application itself, such as a spell checker for a word processor, for example.

 Linux.com - The graphical environment
The use and configuration of window managers and desktops is straightforward and may even resemble the standard MS Windows, MacIntosh or UNIX CDE environment, although many Linux users prefer flashier desktops and fancier window managers.
Although many window managers will honor geometry specifications as given, others may choose to ignore them (requiring the user to explicitly draw the window's region on the screen with the pointer, for example).
A desktop manager makes use of one window manager or another for arranging your graphical desktop in a convenient way, with menubars, drop-down menus, informative messages, a clock, a program manager, a file manager and so on.

 Managing X11 Windows Environment
In order to customize the environment to your specifications, you need to understand how (and where) to specify behaviors for the various components comprising the environment, such as the X server, the window manager, and other X client applications (for example, ATK programs such as messages, console, and so forth).
Other window managers use a similar file; for example, if you are running twm, you would have a.twmrc file in your home directory instead of an.mwmrc file.
Mwm is a highly configurable X11 window manager that allows you to manage numerous aspects of the windows on your screen, such as their size and placement.

In addition, X was intentionally designed to provide the low-level mechanism for managing the graphics display, but not to have any control over what is displayed.
The server also manages the input devices (usually a keyboard and mouse), and it manages the display of colors and fonts on the screen, all based on requests from a client.
The window manager is an application that is itself an X client, with responsibility for managing the appearance and placement of the windows on the screen.
