WM recommendations?


I've been using KDE since forever, and am considering trying out some lightweight WMs like PeKWM, Fluxbox and Openbox. I've never used one of these things before, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about pros and cons of different ones, and pitfalls to avoid?

Urgh... trying out pekwm and already there's a real problem... the default keybindings all assume you're using a three-button mouse! Aside from Mac users, who the heck has a three-button mouse???

I don't know of many Mac users that have three button mice. You may have it configured to that if you press down on the scroll wheel, or simultaneously click the left and right buttons it will emulate the third button.
