When I install a bare system, such as Debian Netinst, after adding GUI stuff, the first WM will be Fluxbox.

Of course I figure the *boxen and other non-compositors will win this one by a long shot, but I voted Compiz here...yes, I'm a sucker for flashy visual effects (plus which my lappy has more than enough resources to handle it).

Ditto here. I love Fluxbox. I play around with other WMs pretty regularly, and sometimes I even stick to one for a while, but I always come back to Fluxbox.

kde or openbox,
well, I have to say that openbox is a light window manager, and very pretty, but I don't know why, that is not so stable for me, if I just leave it on, and do not do some action, it gonna be die within 5mins, and have no reaction without force computer shutdown( cut down the power).

but kde is nice.

KDE is not a window manager. It is a desktop environment.
