    There are backports of kde 3.x to woody but if you are concerned about speed you probably shouldn't be running kde on a machine with only 64MB of RAM anyway

    I suggest IceWM, I even use it on my 1GHz.

    Lookswise, it represents win more than anything, only icons I use are mozilla and xterm.

    I used to use IceWM when I was using Mandrake but now I am quite used to fluxbox but I might try IceWM.
