FVWM-Crystal aims to create an easy to use, pretty, but also powerful desktop environment for Linux or other Unix-like operating systems. It uses the following programs: FVWM as a window manager and "main core"; different ways to provide icons on the desktop including support for many file managers and custom commands; xterm, aterm, mrxvt, or urxvt as terminal emulators; MPD or XMMS2 as music players (there's built-in support for controlling these programs), and several other tools for different functions, like setting a wallpaper or taking screenshots.

X Persistent Remote Applications (xpra) is "screen for X". It lets you run applications remotely (like ordinary X or VNC), but unlike ordinary X, these applications are "persistent" if you lose your connection, or even if you want to switch to another computer. Also unlike VNC, they are ordinary applications on your desktop managed by your window manager, not trapped in a box.

The goal of BBMozLib is to provide a way to render XUL or HTML pages directly into an off-screen buffer that can be rendered with the 2D, 3D, or 4D API of your choice, and to make this as simple as JavaScript programming. It is to provide a platform-independent and convenient API for embedding Gecko into graphical applications like games. It features eye candy, ease of use, and i18n support. It can make parts of the GUI transparent, works in different resolutions, and has a wide range of widgets. By using existing technologies like HTML, the programmer is released from the burden of placing widgets. Glitz support is planned for when the API is stable and frozen.

WnDO (formerly Fbdo) is a small suite of complementary tools for adding behavioral extensions to Gnome, Xfce, Fluxbox, and other window managers. WnDO offers a plugin platform for tweaking the desktop environment. It focuses on modifying behavior, rather than adding desktop widgets. It has minimal dependencies, other than Python. Included modules handle window alignment, simple window tiling, process management, wallpaper management, and custom keyboard shortcuts. Wallpaper management capabilities include per-workspace and randomly-selected wallpaper. It performs its own key grabbing in order to avoid interaction and conflict with the equivalent window manager facility. It requires CmDO.
