    Window Managers

    Description says it all. Which WM do you use and which one is the fastest/snappiest/coolest of them all?

    In my own opinion every linux windows manager has its ups and downs.

    And in all reality the best one is the one you build your self.

    But i like a trimed system with kde.

    KDE for work and whatnot, ehh version 3.3.2 I believe.

    Enlightenment for my poor underpowered home rig. Still trying to find the time to upgrade to the newest release tho... 'cause its purdy!

    Well FVWM is basically what you want it to be - fast and sleek window manager, full-featured desktop environment, a waste of time No, not really - but it does take a loooooot of time to configure.
    For the rest I am really fond of openbox, very simple - simple configuration, fast, looks good. I prefer it over fluxbox, though I like transparency .

    All about the E here, I have been using Enlightenment for almost as long as I have been using linux, now that said I do love the KDE community, and the applications. Also **Puts on flame retardant suit** I think Qt is much more attractive than GTK

    I used to be a KDE fan...but recently seeing GNOME 2.6 and using it, I fell into love with it. Nowadays I use GNOME, KDE or XFCE as the mood strikes me

    I prefer Fluxbox and XFce. Both are extremely memory efficient, fast and pretty to look at. But then again I'm somewhat of a minimalist and like it that way.

    I FOLLOW KISS! (Keep it super-simple)
