I'm pretty sure that's twm, the window manager that X comes with. By default, your xinitrc file on a new X install loads twm and a couple of xterms. To get out of it, exit the xterm labeled "login".

To make it use something else, grep through /etc/X11 for a file containing "twm", and edit this file so that instead of executing these:

twm &
xterm -geometry <stuff> &
xterm -geometry <stuff> &
exec xterm -geometry <stuff> -name login
it executes something like this:

exec startkde
Or exec gnome-session if you happen to like Gnome.
