Amen. Want to do something? Read "man fvwm", edit ".fvwm2". Done.
I gave KDE a couple of good tries and while it's nice to have on the
Gnoppix Live CDROM, for example, I don't want to climb it's learning
curve to configure it to my own preferences in daily use.
I keep the right 1.5" of my 4-page screen normally devoted to a column
of gizmos that do everything I need to do. You can easily write
gizmos (eg, Tk/Python) and hook them it into fvwm's button/display
system, though fvwm has all the built-in gizmos I've needed except
my online/offline button/indicator/GMT-display.
