I voted for xmonad, as it's the closest thing there is to a comfortable, tiling window manager.
StumpWM comes close, but I just wish it didn't force the need for a prefix key-sequence - I personally wish it behaved a little more like xmonad.
As far as other WMs I use go, I am also quite partial to CWM (on OpenBSD).
I haven't invested much time in finding the differences between any of these and so I stick with the default for ubuntu. Which I'm pretty sure is metacity. And I enable the effects which makes it fun If I'm wrong, oh well -- metacity gets an uninformed vote.
fluxbox gets the vote, but icewm is not far behind. (BTW icewm theme problems are now fixed)
Ahh I do see that they have some changes this year I will have to download it and compile it promptly. I really do hope the themes have been fixed I will have to test it and see if its working. I am actually surprised to see this out since there was no activity on the mailing list( I am currently subscribed). I know that I mentioned it so maybe someone saw that and did some work
Distribution: Linux Mint 8, Ubuntu Studio 9.10, DSL 4.1
Fluxbox & Metacity are ok. Compiz is pretty cool. But my vote goes to Enlightenment. By far, the most elegant & pretty window manager I've ever seen! The only downside is that it's a bit of a resource-hog which makes sense considering all it's doing & I can live with that.
