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.

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.

Yeah, you right. That is my memory from old times with RedHat 5.2 ;)

That explains it. Don't judge fvwm by the atrosity that Redhat used to package and call fvwm. Definately not the same. FVWM-Crystal is nice but to me it doesn't seem to be much more than fvwm+a-nice-theme. Is this newsworthy, or did I miss something obvious here?
