Nice. It's fun to see the dual monitor CRT setup - gives me flashbacks 
to when I dropped on on my leg. Thankfully, we're doing LEDs and whatnot 
these days, no big whoop dropping them on your leg and the missing 
laserbeams gotta be healthier. Thanks for the timely post. I've been 
studying X of late and was wondering what a Dec windows setup looked 
like compared to Motif and twm which are available still. I remember 
liking Sun's WM, but it's been ages (1995-1996) since I used it. I see 
he was rockin' the fuschia yuck, techies shouldn't be allowed to set 
colors. I don't think the Sun had color, or if it did, it was pretty 
tame - shades of muted tones or something.
