1. Perhaps this like can give you information on what is the "fasterst" Desktop "enveroment" - http://www.kdedevelopers.org/node/1663.

2. Why yes, Fluxbox does is a free Desktop environment, as matter of fact. Actually, it's more of a window manager. People seem to like because it doesn't use up a lot of resources. I've switched to KDE because I found that Fluxbox is kind of buggy, probably because the development release is the only one still supported.

nah ... use icewm and/or blackbox instead ... while kde/gnome are for the families ... for example wivies and kids and mama and papa ... and probably colleagues/comrades too ...

**(You peeked) A bug is a special key for sending high-speed morse code. It was used for running some of the early-30's computers--before development of the keypunch.

You guys are ALL wrong! XP is the fastest desktop environment, by far!
