    This is the best light weight vm that works perfectly mostly when you want to run games in 3D (or any other games) that conflict with Unity/Compiz from Ubuntu. And is extensively configurable. You open a new X session at :1 and run JWM there, and everything runs easy and stable after that :), thx!

    This is the first WM I successfully compiled and installed on my Ubuntu x64 VM.

    great choice for virtual machines that need an X enviroment ( oracle configuration, for instance ), but have to be kept minimal on size and or resources. I've replaced twm with this on all my VM's.
