Window Managers FVWM-Crystal is an eye-candy, functional and ultra-fast desktop environment for GNU/Linux and Unix, based on FVWM. Crystal can be used even on very old machines, thus it is a noticeable alternative to popular desktop choices like XFCE or Fluxbox.

FVWM-Crystal is indeed a pretty and clean transformation of FVWM, but i'm sorry but every time i remember FVWM i remember the Win95 UI. I guess it's the default FVWM look yet ;)

Wrong. It's a default, but in Fvwm95 project. Clean FVWM has a default of grey screen with nothing on it ;)

Please read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FVWM and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FVWM95 for more info on those two.

Maybe you should remember fvwm-xpm instead. It was after all the precusor to the development of Enlightenment, and should be flashy-enough for anyone.
