Exclamation light window manager


Hi there!! I am searching for a
small
fast
low system-requirements
keyboard based commands
Lot of themes to choose

I have tried the icewm but i think the 20 mbs are so musch for what it gives.. I also find it very difficult to configure it and it isn;t as fast as i need..

Secondly i have tried the window maked... I have noticed that so littles things can be performed from keyboard.....I can't navigate through ,menu with the keyboards buttons...


Do u have any suggestions?

BTW: Do not recommend me Gnome and KDE (they are so heavy :P)
