Another way...
Authored by: DaphneDiane on Jan 23, '03 12:47:50AM
I find following .xinitrc stuff works well and actually keys off the difference between the two X11 servers. Apparently Apple's X11 using an "Apple-DRI" extension for quartz-wm to talk to, so I just check for this...
if /usr/X11R6/bin/xdpyinfo | /usr/bin/grep -q Apple-DRI; then
    # Using Apple's server
    /usr/X11R6/bin/quartz-wm
else
    # Using XDarwin or another server
    /sw/bin/startkde
fi
