Enlightenment should get more votes this year because of the success of the new Bodhi Linux distro which feature the new e17 version. I find Enlightenment e17 to be the most light weight Windows manager that has full keyboard shortcuts and can be configured the way I want.

I wanted to say Compiz, But I was reffered to try fluxbox and I love the hell out of it (i use gnome/flux about 50/50). So I'm saying flux on this.

Well it stands to reason if KDE is my favorite desktop, then KWin is my favorite windows manager.

The "b" in Openbox shouldn't be capitalised.

Wow, it's the time of year already...I always go with Openbox and since I like Gnome 2, I'll say Metacity also!
