If you are looking for KDE, Gnome, etc they are in the Desktop Environment Award.

Hmm, i need to figure out what the difference between a "window manager" and a "desktop manager" is.

H_TeXMeX_H 01-08-2010 02:10 PM

you mean desktop environment ? well a desktop environment includes additional programs, these would mostly include KDE, GNOME, XFCE. Fluxbox on the other hand does not come with additional programs such as a file manager, image viewer, document viewer, etc.

Another one for fluxbox

Since no dwm I selected openbox since I use it once in a while.

compiz and fluxbox, chose compiz.

There are a couple in the list I'm unfamiliar with, e.g. "Awesome", but otherwise OpenBox takes the cake, hands down.

IceWM even if its kinda buggy these days with themes. Second choice would be fluxbox a tried and true friend that spans the ages.

If any poll needed an "other" category this is surely it.

Compiz is finally working properly for me, so I'm going to go with it. Besides, it was the first wm that made my wife say "Oooo - I want that on my machine"

fvwm gets my vote - I prefer to start with nothing (ie a black .fvwm2rc file!) and build up the wm exactly how I want it. As I go along I still add the odd tweak here and there as I think of them however my wm works great for me now and what is what matters! :) Whether anybody else would be able to use it as fluently doesn't matter to me - I am the only one using this pc! :)

I voted Compiz. Yes, I'm a sucker for visuals ;)

But in all seriousness, that's not the only reason I use it. I like compositing and H/W acceleration, too. :D No more blit smearing!

I thought compiz was a windows manager enhancer not a wm it self?
