I like fluxbox as I tend to use both gtk2 gnome and kde apps and I find it makes for a more consistent and simple desktop. The one feature that I like the most about fluxbox is enabling the mouse scroll wheel to swtich between workspaces. VERY handy and fast!
I have to say that both the Gnome and Kde desktops are brilliant and its amazing that they are freely distributable. Of the two I prefer Gnome as its more MacOS like.
just installed it on my LFS system and i simply love it. its light-weight and there's so much to learn and to make it asthetically more apealing and functionally more accurate. its more of a learning experience with fluxbox.
before that i used kde. i am a big fan of that too. personally i dont like gnome... simply because it looks so much like windows (and finding things were a bit frustrating there)... may be i am wrong.... thats only my view. no hard feelings gnome fans..
