I've installed slack13 on two computers now. An aspire one and my workstation. I run fluxbox on both. It's so nice and easy. I use dolphin as my file manager tho.

Just got to add that slackware64 on my computer (6000+ and SSD harddrive) runs _amazingly_ fast. Firefox, thunderbird and openoffice is opened literally in a blink of an eye

Ratpoison is GREAT!
Sometimes KDE4 and Fluxbox (the later I'm still learning how to customize).

Mostly I'm using KDE4 but I use XFCE quite a bit as well. I have our flat screen HDTV set up as a second monitor and I like having both displays as separate X desktops (which kde4 won't do atm), so I switch to XFCE to have a movie on for the kids and still be able to do whatever on the other desktop.

i'm running XFCE with goodies from Robby Workman, some gnome libs and gnome-games compiled with src2pkg. Slackware64 is really great on
an Aspire 5738. The only annoying thing was the XFCE terminal showing up scrambled text in the title and menus after some time, so i'm using lxterminal.

I decided on xfce.

I just really don't like KDE 4. I never really cared for KDE to begin with (always thought GNOME was better), and this thing just sucks the life out of my computer.

Xfce is great. Though honestly, I don't like some of the changes they made to 4.6 either.

I'm just surprised at the reception KDE 4 is getting. Frankly, I think it seems a bit inconsistent to the KISS methodology. But, maybe that's just me.

KDE 4. I like it and although a lightweight WM does appeal to me, the convenience of a full DE is a real benefit in my day-to-day work.
