Speed & efficiency go mainstream again

Behold as many of the trendy, flashy window-manager frills you’ve always wanted appear in a version of FVWM.

You too can have transparency & representatively minimised windows on a small, old PC (or have it very rapidly on a large, new PC).

This looks like it’s about a round away from being a one-click release. There’s a little fiddling to get it perfectly set-up now, but there’s obvious work being done to automate that away.

It comes with a range of impressive themes, from elegantly simple to overwhelming, & a number of thoughtful, practice-oriented shortcuts etc. And it works with underpowered machines, too, which implies reasonable performance on machines with poorly-supported hardware.
