Nope..  :-)  If you *really* want cool, ya gotta stick with TWM!

I love XFCE..  It has some body to it and runs well to boot.  Never tried
it on IRIX though - probably cause I don't have an SGI :-)  I did mean
windowmaker, you're right.  Right now I normally use Blackbox myself just
because it's easy to tinker with and gives me multiple virtual
desktops.  Then again, I don't have enough power in any of my systems to
really enjoy gnome or kde.
