It's where I put stuff from my desktop that I'm not sure I want/might need later or not.

That's the beauty of Linux. You don't need a fancy machine to make it run, and that comes in good with older computers you can still use. Although there is something to be said for running Linux as a server in the same regard. Windows will eat up all your hardware, and Linux will not.

Sharing the simple and efficient beauty of fvwm
http://sekrit.de/screen/fvwm_20100804.jpg

btw .. you can barely notice the difference between violet and pink in the vim instance of this screenie cause I converted it to sRGB using relative colorimetric intent -- the pink on my monitor is just far outside sRGB

That's pretty much the first FVWM desktop I've seen that I don't think looks repulsive!

Maybe that's because THIS time, I tried to replace KDE KDE 4.x just got to memory- and cpu-time-hungry for my aging machine...

You can have fvwm look and behave whatever YOU want (there aren't many limitations indeed, i asked about one very strange issue regarding icons, but didn't get a response so far...) -- BUT it requires you write a lot of configurations in a text editor

The problem is that there is no good explanation of the format of that configuration file.

Depends on what you expect. The manpage fvwm(1) is a great reference for the config file syntax. But if you are looking for "tutorial style" documentation -- indeed, I don't know of any.
