Window Managers

The window manager you use with X is very personal. I currently use KDE on my main desktop system. My test system is under-powered and runs Fluxbox. I've tried GNOME several times and can't get along with it.

Even on my AMD64 desktop system KDE is quite sluggish to start when compared with Fluxbox. I don't run KDE on low powered systems and I appreciate that Fluxbox is the Damn Small Linux default.

I think I just need to get a little more use to Fluxbox and I'd probably switch to it full time. It's not as if I use all the eye-candy in KDE anyway, the main reason I like KDE is that I can turn most of the effects off.
