Cool In search of the best GUI.


I am looking for a GUI in X-Windows that has a sleek design and makes running Linux faster. I have tried out all the different managers (KDE, Gnome, Fluxbox.) In your opinion, what do you think is the best GUI?

I'm a fluxbox man. If you're into browsing files graphically, I like to use flubox with the rox browser. There are all sorts of modifications for fluxbox like cool docs and icons on your desktop that you can get from fluxbox.sourceforge.net

Windowmaker isn't too bad either.

Hahahaha, I fall into it every time! I can never resist a chance to plug fluxbox

I still think questions like these are valuable. I've found about some great things from threads like this where people just basically get to vent.

I don't think you can get much faster than not running a WM. In your .xinitrc file, just have an xterm open so you can run your other apps from there. Sure you're not gonna have all the bells and whistles of a WM, but then it'll be like lightning!

Oh, and read my sig for my prefs.
