    i think gnome uses FAM to do stuff like automount. KDE might use it too.
    When you put in a cd, gnome will automatically mount it and put a link to it on the desktop, super nifty
    Other wms might use it too

    nautilus is one app that uses. I believe konqueror does also. If you want to know exactly what it does check out the FAQ.

    I saw a post from a Red Hat developer a while back who mentioned wanting to rewrite FAM to make it more sane. ie. for one, not having it need portmap, but it wasn't high on the priority list.
