X Windows Managers

In the world of *nix there are two dominant window managers, and associated technologies, KDE/Qt and GNOME/Gtk. They each have their merits, and problems. Personally I prefer KDE over GNOME, but on my antique computers both are too bloated and slow to give 100% satisfaction.

Today I was playing with Fluxbox, which is much simpler, and a lot faster. It's not for everyone, but if you know what you are doing, it does allow you to get that extra bit out of your computer.
