Window Manager of the Year
 
If you are looking for KDE, Gnome, etc they are in the Desktop Environment Award.

XFce is actually a Desktop, not a Window Manager from my knowledge. Even their homepage states its a lightweight desktop. :)

Mine unfortunately isn't on there. But I'll throw in a vote for ratpoison anyway. :)

Have Enlightenment on my Debian box. I luv the virtual workspaces that it has.

You know I play with them all...but I always go back to Windowmaker. I have no idea why. Just love it.

For me, I love using Fluxbox... it's so easy to use and ya don't have the taskbar and all the other pretty stuff get in the way :)

Kinda like mydini, only fluxbox is my magnet. I tried dozens early on and found and stuck to blackbox. Until I found fluxbox and then, other than cycling through the wm's and desktops on Slack 9 for a few hours after I installed it and later trying dropline gnome for a few days, and just trying XFCE4 the past few days, it's all fluxbox. Got bored/annoyed with XFCE4 (which is quite nice, but not my thing) last night and I'm happy to be fluxing again. :)

fluxbox is like a dream... cant wait for the stable 1.0 release :)

jeremy 11-16-2003 10:36 AM

fluxbox for me, it rocks, runs in 600k or RAM, has everything you actually need, and it's easy enough for my 11 year old brother to use, which is saying a lot.

Sawfish rocks,
Sawfish rocks,
Sawfish all the way!
It's really small,
and configurable,
and really makes my day!

(Sorry, I'm in a Christmas kind of mood... a bit early)

Kahakai??? It's the fastest moving, most featured WM out there and really is a cut above the rest.
