General discussion

I don't see the purpose of this article - whether it's going to be about session-managers for starting apps, or just general startup program howto's. I think an article of this scope would be unnecessary rework, since this is already covered in many article sections. Suggest marking this article for deletion, as it is a stub that only refers to other articles -- Roygbiv 14:27, 17 June 2011 (EDT)

What would you think of using this article in the vein of pacman, AUR, Daemon, Kernel modules... so that when in an article it says to autostart an application, it could link to this page for all the general ways of doing that? For example I remember a piece of an article I wrote some time ago that could be quite easily generalized and put here. -- Kynikos 04:57, 21 June 2011 (EDT)
I agree, and I think this was the original purpose of the article: to show generally how to autostart applications. So writing this kind of article shouldn't be a problem itself, only that I fear that it would be alot of rework, as mentioned before. On the other side, this is justified if it could be written so general that any article could reference this one, instead of having their own section about autostart. This would then be done by replacing all autostart sections in articles with a reference to this one. I'm not really sure, but it would have been more KISS to have a really thorough article on this. -- Roygbiv 07:03, 21 June 2011 (EDT)
