Question Which DE/WM Do You Use


So my question is simple, what Desktop Environment you use in Slackware 13.1 and why?

nFluxbox 'cause it's lighter than KDE/Gnome/XFCE/LXDE and it's very adaptable/configurable

Mostly KDE, with occasional XFCE or Fluxbox sessions.

Neither KDE nor Gnome are window managers.

Neither of the 5 is..
Theres 4 DE's (which contain WM's) and 1 box which means nothing.

Really? I've run FVWM as the window manager for both KDE and Gnome desktop environments. My answer was "Other".

Maybe the OP should change the poll to read "What desktop environment do you use in Slackware 13.1".

I've just reported your thread to ask for the title to be changed.

In the future, you can do the same, using the REPORT button on the first post in your thread.

All the best.

P.S. - @ BrianL

P.P.S - As this thread is less than a week old, the OP should be able to click 'Edit' and then "Go Advanced" and from there, should be able to change the thread title.

Not sure, but I think you'll have to ask a Moderator to change it, hit the Report button. Change it to "Which DE and/or WM do you use?"

Can everybody stop typing faster than me, please?

I use XFCE, its very fast but not that minimalist, have a great look and its growing.
I like to see more effort in Slackware for these DE, so I seeing what people use.

I used XFCE for a long time, recently I've switched to Gnome with occasional fits of madness when I run stumpwm, a tiling WM (a screenshot from stumpwm's website)
