Is it possible to switch between GNOME/Beryl and Blackbox

Is it possible to switch between GNOME/Beryl and Blackbox without rebooting, I know I asked you people if I should use KDE or GNOME but I saw a screenshot of GNOME with Beryl imitating the Windows Aero interface and was beautiful and a beautiful screenshot of Blackbox and I want to use both by switching back and forth, without rebooting, so is it possible?

Just log out, and then when

Just log out, and then when you log in choose a different window manager.

Alternatively you can prob run them both at the same time on different ttys... ctrl-alt-f7 will get you to your current wm, ctrl-alt-f1 or f2, f3 etc will get you to other ttys, maybe just running blackbox in one of those will get them both running at the same time...

Yeah

but you can't run 2 window managers at the same time (Beryl is a window manager which is a fork of Compiz).

The point of running Beryl and GNOME together is because you get special effects while moving the windows and Beryl can act as the equivalent of Windowsblinds.
