This was a hard one. For me, fluxbox, and thats the one I vote. This year I change a few times of window manager.

First Enlightment, its fast, nice, but hard to drive. That take me off from it.
Then metacity with Gnome, don't make me a great desktop, also, the velocity decreases a lot. So switch to the firsts alphas of xfce 4.
XFCE4: great, just what I was specting from a GTK2 WM. Great tools, nice manager, easy to configure an drive, but in a few months I get bored of it.
Openbox: I allways like *box, back in the days of slackware 3, blackbox drive me crazy ;-). But this was no so good, maybe in a few years...
Fluxbox: O_O, when I got it running (took me a time to get it as I like) is great, perfect I must say. First I toke a chance with the beta, but gkrellm was show on the taskbar so I say "let gets stable" :p, then 0.1.. Love it! Runs fine, managin it is fully aceptable, dockapping tools... got all, I don't know wath to say... try it! :p

Alright, if we're not going to see Kahakai, I'll go openbox, my second choice. Version 3 is smooth, and fewer irrelevancies than flux imho.

XFCE is not a WM...
It's a DE.

Many of the window managers out there perform very well, but Fluxbox gets my vote as I have been able to tweak it to my taste w/ the least effort plus it's just FAST!

i may get a slap for this but i would like to see kde up there?

*slpas himself for everyone else who is intending to*

matthewhardwick 11-19-2003 06:47 AM

ohh shit,
*slaps himself so hard he falls on the floor*

kde is a desktop, not a windows manager?
is that right maybe thats why it isnt here, after kde winmaker and enlightenment are my next choices. But wait there desktops not windows managers, im confused :scratch:

Fluxbox for me... I just love it, there's nothing except what really needs to be there, and super fast.

the new fluxbox is pretty lovely and fast as well

OpenBox got my vote, though I would have voted for FVWM if it were on the list. I went through the various *box WMs but settled on FVWM because with a little patience you can configure most every aspect of how it works. O.K. make that a lot of patience.

i agree

Window Maker and Enlightenment are Window Managers, not desktops to clarify this for you.
