I use TWM and it's been a lot of fun, not listed though so I guess I'll just add my vote here instead.

FLWM

I try them all desperately hoping I will find the perfect WM but time after time I end up back with flwm. Easy hop between desktops, maximal window size, beautifully responsive window adjustment, and easily managed and easily adjusted menu.

Me too!

Can we have TWM in the list please or is it too late?

Sorry, yes, I just realised when I clicked on the link in another poll. I thought the 'View Poll Results' gave you the latest scores and that it wouldn't let me see them as I hadn't voted in the poll (I voted in the thread as it wasn't on the list).

I give it to openbox, but i3 is close behind if you have the patience to learn a tiling manager.

Openbox. IMHO, it has the best keyboard shortcuts. It also doesn't have the perpetual issues that tiling window managers have (for example, if I run i3 and I launch 1password with wine, I get screen corruption).

I was following Openbox ever since it was forked from Blackbox, btw.
