Selecting a window manager



Why does Gnome (and Fedora) not have a Window Manager preference selector? I can kind of understand why Fedora would not distribute some Window managers that do not comply with the things that a distributor would like a good citizen window manager to comply with. But surely there is more than one good choice and hence it would be a good to allow Users to choose alternatives to Metacity. And to be able to add a window manager to that chooser. Having to simultaneously kill one WM while starting up another on the command line seems so twentieth century. I have a hunch this might be as much a political issue as a technical issue, but I could be wrong. :-)

FWIW, I've used Metacity now for a month or so, since FC3 came out, and it is OK but I sorely miss the sawfish Moondome theme (which cannot be done for Metacity as near as I can tell) and the "resize to max (vertical or horizontal) and lock" operation. Are there any FC3 users who are still using sawfish without hassle?
