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.

and it took awhile for me to consider it again.

Recently I had installed a copy of RH 5.x on VPC on my iBook. It was as bad in emulation as when I first tried it (included in a beginner's linux book). I played with it for a month or two, got tired of it and dumped it. I couldn't even get Dillo installed, because no version of bunzip would install on it.

But I might give Crystal FVWM a try on some old machines at work.
