I recently switched to Sawfish from FVWM after recently switching from
Vim to Emacs. :) I use conky for system stats and cairo-compmpr for
compositing and cairo-dock for the task bar, system tray and pager. Oh,
and colortail for viewing system logs in a transparent Eterm. It looks
nice and has transparency but it is a little buggy sometimes.
