Which Window Maker (Manager?)

Hello there everybody once again!
Right another question regarding window makers (managers?).

Which one (I know there are loads out there) would be the most easiest to configure and uses as little resource as possible?

I've heard of a lot but don't know which one is the most resource free.

Cheers everybody!

Check out XFce,
Its low on resources and easy to configure and install.

Well easiest on resources but also the simplest would be twm or tab window manager, which are quite obsolete today, but still used on low resource machines. Xfce and black/fluxbox are small, and easy on resources, and much easier to configure.
