Changing the default DM in Fedora

If you don’t know how to do it with systemd, which is the recommended
way, install system-switch-displaymanager. Give it as an argument
the display manager you want, in all caps (e.g. GDM, KDM, LXDM, etc.)
and what it does (so we learn some systemd after all) is
(let’s take GDM as an example):
# ln -s /lib/systemd/system/gdm.service /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service
This works in every systemd-using distribution, except
system-switch-displaymanager is Fedora-specific.
