fvwm continues to get better every day!
There are new features being added all the time to fvwm and almost daily! Some of the latest features include window shading in all directions and font shadows in titles, menus and modules. You can get rpm's for fvwm at http://fvwm-themes.sf.net now too! :-)
Also fvwm now supports transparencies, dynamic configuration changes, gnome, kde, session management, xinerama, and much much more.
Truly one of the most up to date and best supported open source window managers there is. A Fantastic Virtual Window Manager for every desktop! I wouldn't use anything else! ;-P
Does anyone know where I might find an RPM of FVWM?
Fvwm is the real deal :)
Those of you using fvwm2 derivatives such as afterstep should take another look at the genuine article. All the goodies you expect are available including wharf etc, and the build process is now the standard ./configure.
For some good configs look at fvwm2gnome (http://fvwm2gnome.fluid.cx/)
I liked it.
An open, cross-platform journaling program.
A scientific plotting package.
