Fluxbox. It's fast and efficient.

A graphical way to edit the menu would be much appreciated though.

=============================
The menu file seems rather easy to edit with a simple editor like nedit. Just follow the pattern of the other menu lines. The real skill required...

As a recent Dropline convert I'm goin with metacity, but from the looks of the comments so far not too many others are. Before I tried Dropline I was dedicated to the flux.

Fluxbox seems to be the best among all of these...although metacity is the gnome default....and i like metacity coz its simple....but my vote goes to fluxbox as its very light and decent looks

Next year hopefully I'll be voting for Enlightenment DR17. I think it could be in with a chance of taking over KDE and Gnome.

In which case it won't be in this category, but "Desktop of the Year" instead ;-)
I'm currently running E DR 16.7 on my home box now......
