Come on, We all know that KDE looks the best, gnome is a compromise betweene looks and speed and all the rest are way faster and much more configurable.

I used to use fluxbox, and I liked it, so I voted for it. However, I use Enlightenment now.

fluxbox, because i like alt+tab between windows. otherwise, blackbox - i use blackbox on really old computers. gnome is ok, but after doing something that messed it up for good (i lost all text!!!) i stopped using it. i started linux with kde and i moved on long ago, but i still like some of the apps in kde.

It's what you want - KDE and Gnome provide something that is fairly similar to Windows - personally my machine can't cope that well with it (1.3Ghz, 640 MB Rambus)

So I just use fluxbox - when will we get real transparency?!
