The thing is the window mannager side of xfce is pratically perfect for what I like. I think I only had to select a theme and change two settings in config files to get it how I like it. (The desktop environment side of xfce isn't too bad either) Seriously thoguh I havent' tried a single window mannager/environment that I've been half as happy with as xfce.
Yes I've tried fluxbox. Can't say it grabbed me much. For one thing I don't remember there being a popup menu task list with icons on it. Admittedly with both Firefox and Gaim having tabbed functionality and Xfce having alt+middle click to send the window to the back I don't even use the task list (currently middle click on desktop) But I'll probably be needing it when I get into heaver things.
As it is I spend enough time on my pc and have been used enough diferent things to know exactically what I want. Don't make me list the specisifycations of my "ideal" desktop now. ;)
