I voted for xfwm4 because mostly i use Xfce and I've never found a reason to change the window manager. I've also used Gnome with xfwm4 as the window manager and everything got a lot faster than with metacity. I'll use anything that's reasonably light and lets me shade a window with a mouse wheel scroll over as my gf doesn't like clicking noises when she's trying to sleep :-)
I am using FVWM. I have not find a window manager so flexible and powerful. For example:
* I can customise each desktop (i.e., each desktop has its own applications menu). This is one of the reasons, appart of its low resources consumption, I moved to FVWM.
* I can have multiple desktops, each with multiple pages. (One desktop is bigger than one screen)
