what is the difference

fvwm - ancien (artefact, i'd say)
fvwm2 - old (stable. 2.4)
fvwm-crystal modification of fvwm (probably 2.4, i dunno) [looks beautiful by default, AFAIK]
fvwm2-devel - new (unstable, however it's very stable, 2.5)
 
I am thinking to try fvwm.
The only gui wm i used was xfce and gnome (when i start unix)
I use dwm so much time and is difficult to me to make the step for something new.
But i saw this 3 screenshots:

and i really am thinking to make a try.
But i don't know what is the right fvwm to download in case i change wm
 
What is patch exactly on a wm?Then i will download fvwm2.Your opinion is to try it?
Also is like fluxbox or like xfce?
 
The only thing i stack is because i love full terminals and dwm because if you don't know key combinations you cannot do completely nothing!
The stupid thing on me is that when i have gui environment, i want something more terminal and when i have terminal, i want something more graphical.
With simple words i don't know what i want :pP
