XFce is actually a Desktop, not a Window Manager from my knowledge. Even their homepage states its a lightweight desktop.

Mine unfortunately isn't on there. But I'll throw in a vote for ratpoison anyway.

You know I play with them all...but I always go back to Windowmaker. I have no idea why. Just love it.

For me, I love using Fluxbox... it's so easy to use and ya don't have the taskbar and all the other pretty stuff get in the way

Kinda like mydini, only fluxbox is my magnet. I tried dozens early on and found and stuck to blackbox. Until I found fluxbox and then, other than cycling through the wm's and desktops on Slack 9 for a few hours after I installed it and later trying dropline gnome for a few days, and just trying XFCE4 the past few days, it's all fluxbox. Got bored/annoyed with XFCE4 (which is quite nice, but not my thing) last night and I'm happy to be fluxing again.

fluxbox for me, it rocks, runs in 600k or RAM, has everything you actually need, and it's easy enough for my 11 year old brother to use, which is saying a lot.

Sawfish rocks,
Sawfish rocks,
Sawfish all the way!
It's really small,
and configurable,
and really makes my day!

(Sorry, I'm in a Christmas kind of mood... a bit early)

Kahakai??? It's the fastest moving, most featured WM out there and really is a cut above the rest.
