It is always Fluxbox. Keyboard shortcuts, menu editing - it is fast, stable and easy to use and set up.

Where is wmii? I discovered this windowmanager less than a year ago and it immediately became my default. And it has made enormous progress in 2005.
I know it's not a mainstream wm, but it's worth a look...

I use also wmii and find it really cool. Lightweight, very good keyboard control, and these amazing layouts - the wm manages the windows for you.

Isn't KWin a KDE window manager?

My vote went for Icewm. Because it has good keyboard shortcuts, fullscreen option, ctrl+alt+space command line, good looking and familiar interface, it's very fast, has a nice cpu, mem monitor , etc

I used fluxbox, wmii, ion3, windowmaker, ratpoison, openbox all for quite a long time.

Enlightenment all the way!

I've just become addicted to Enlightenment lately. It works great on its own, and it's really nice if you combine it with KDE.
