Did you note that pekwm can make much nicer themes than openbox, even mac os x is possible & complex themes.
Well, I really haven't looked at theming yet (I just installed openbox and pekwm for the first time to try them out).
Icewm is quite slow for me.
I didn't notice any difference between Openbox and IceWM. Not yet anyways.. it could be because of my limited experience with Openbox..
In which kind of situations do you notice the difference? When accessing the desktop menus? It looks like Openbox isn't using gtk for drawing them(?) so maybe there could be some difference.
