I actually use vtwm quite effectively, and will test it on CentOS 7
when I have a chance. Much, much lighter weight than most modern
managers, and thus much more robust on thin clients and overwhelmed
VM's. Will I need to try to get that into Fedora first, or is there a
reasonable way to get it into the 'extras' for CentOS?
