It annoys me how little attention metacity gets. If you want to turn on compositing, but don't have the resources for compiz's compositing, metacity is the way to go!

Compiz won??? If spinning cubes and wobbly windows are what it takes to be the best window manager... bah humbug. Enjoy having hundreds of mb's of your RAM eaten away for some eye candy.

Sorry IceWM, looks like we're washed up. But I'm using openbox these days anyway.

Currently playing with Enlightenment E17. It has some elegant looking themes, and some software to go with it. Next year it should be classified as a D.E. since it supports wallpapers and icons.
