I still fail to understand why so much bloated code is needed to display a
few Xterms. I do not like things that get in the way, and those new
window managers tend to slow down and bug down my computational experience
quite often.

Besides one of the few guarantees in life is that most Unix systems will
have 2 things: vi and twm, so it si a good thing to be in good terms with
both. :)
