I honestly have no idea what’s changed – do we have a JVM user in here? Don’t fail me guys and girls!

Temcat 2011-10-07 6:54 pm EST It’s been a while since I’ve last fired up PuppyLinux from that old flash drive, but I remember JWM being a nice, functional and fast window manager. wainamoinen 2011-10-07 9:48 pm EST JWM is light, fast, simple. I love it.🙂 n4cer 2011-10-08 12:09 am EST The question posed at the end of the news post mentions JVM instead of JWM. OSbunny 2011-10-08 5:36 am EST Yeah it’s a typo. JVM is the java virtual machine. Icaria 2011-10-08 6:43 am EST JWM is great when running an ancient PC. Granted, I still prefer a *box.
