...both mentioned by you are Desktop Environments, perry

KDE - KWin Window Manager

Gnome - Metacity (or Compiz, Beryl or others ) - Window Managers.

With kind regards,

Beryl is one of the coolest things I've seen in a long, long time.

Beryl is quite interesting. As a very fancy window manager, to be used in conjunction with a Desktop Environment, such as KDE, GNOME, or XFCE, I agree. However, if I were going to use just a window manager, then I would not go with Beryl. In that case, I would choose either the winner, Fluxbox, or as a flexible, easy alternative, IceWM. Reasons: fast, lightweight flexibility combined with maturity.
