I would like to give a big "Thank you!" to the KDE folks for allowing 
us to choose our own window manager.  In the past I've found myself 
struggling with whether to use FVWM or KDE.  I've stayed with FVWM 
because it's a fully customizable window manager.  I just found out in 
the last couple of weeks that I could use the KDE desktop with FVWM.
