Bases on an old favorite of mine, blackbox. I used bb for over a year at one time and really only changed out of curiosity to try something totally different (that's probably what got me into Linux in the first place ;-) ). Use ratpoison and occasionally wmi and ion. When I want something more "guified", I use XFCE4.2 beta.

===============
Do you actually use it as a stand alone wm?? Or as the wm the the xfce4 DE, in which case you can vote in that category.

Fluxbox with either the cthulhain or artwiz styles--keep it "hardcore" looking.

Fluxbox. Slick and lovely.

By the way, what kind of little desktop enhancements are you Fluxboxers running (i.e., icon dock, clock, etc.)??
