fvwm 1 is also the only version that allows me to switch between the virtual
screens with ctrl-arrow . I refuse to mouse over to the panning window
and click there; that's a complete waste of time for me. The ctrl-arrow
keystroke is fully programmed into my neural nets :-)
Of course, if there's any way to do that with another window manager
(e.g. fvwm 2.2), I'd love to hear about it. But *I* have never been
able to find out how.
I'd also like to hear what added value fvwm 2.2 has. If all there is
is the taskbar or launchbar or whatever it's called, then I'm not
interested. I prefer to have my apps launchable from the mouse directly.
