the best window

years, so it looks something from the dark ages.
I am talking about FVWM of course, its ____THE____ most flexible WM to
config there is, there is almost nothing you cannot do in it as long as
you are willing to dive into the config files, and this does apply to
making it look top class . Its very flexibilty though makes it a
challenge to config, but in the end its the ___ONLY__ window manager
that one can change to suit you. Nearly every other one forces something
down ones throat. Note FVWM does provide tools that help one experiment
with the config.
I am not trying to sell FVWM to anybody just mentioning a program I
cannot get on without.
Uisng linux for 21 years,
Sawfish is another long-standing and highly configurable WM.
It uses a variant of lisp under the hood.
