I was actually talking about FVWM2, sorry. It is improved over FVWM but
still has that look of a pastel sketch of a window manager. It's great
for doing resource intensive work, where you want every bit of your
resouces you can get and functionality of a good window manager.
You can change the fonts and the colors but other than that you are
still stuck with a plain jane window manager. There's no doubt in my
mind it will be available in optional. If it had the ability to add
custom graphics as E does, and had a GUI config, as E does, there would
be no question about which WM we use. At least in my mind.
