Fvwm2 and Fvwm95 together take about 2MB, WindowsMaker (my default desktop btw) 2.5MB, so ropping them does not save a lot of space. What Slack has done makes a lot more sense: move the two fat desktops Gnome and KDE to the second CD. I think they should drop Netscape 7.1 since Mozilla 1.6 is already included. And dropping Fvwm95 is actually not a bad idea: the project seems almost dead, and Fvwm2 can do everything it can. Better replace it with a maintained alternative, like IceWM.
