fvwm is still managing my windows. My current fvwm2rc.m4 was handcrafted more than 10 years ago, but still does what I need.

I've often thought the FVWM project could do themselves a favor by using a more "normal" default configuration. This wouldn't affect people like yourself who have their own fine-tuned configuration, but I think it would help new users stick with it longer, with more of them staying on as long-term users. The way it it now it's tempting to say "I can't use this" after about 10 minutes and move on to something else.
I haven't tried FVWM for about a year, so maybe this has changed.
