I agree with the previous posts. If you've done a full install of 10.2 you have a ton of window managers to choose from. I run 10.2 on an old system, a Pll 266, so XFce4 and Flux works great for me.
When you are at the run level three command prompt you can switch between window managers easily with the command xwmconfig
So try them all out, they're all good.
