    XFCE as it gives a great mix of lightness and features but gets out of the way as a desktop should.

    Switched to Xfce after using KDE for a long time.

    Openbox continues to be my default window manager, but I'm still maintaining other machines with Awesome, i3, and PekWM for experimental purposes. Thus far, I don't see any of those replacing Openbox in the near future. I also have and maintain Gnome3, KDE4, and Xfce boxes, but don't really get into full desktop environments like I do stand-alone window managers.

    There aren't enough votes cast yet to get much of an idea about what we are all using on our machines, but it's interesting that IceWM has jumped out there to take the lead, at least for now. I might install it again some weekend ahead and play around with it for a bit to see what changes have occurred.

    Code:
    Desktop: IceWM 1.3.7
    My mainstay. Fluxbox is my second choice.

    Wow... if this keeps up, IceWM is going to reign as king of the desktop (at least on this forum)!

    Hmm... just checked and noticed that it's been quite some time since a new version of IceWM has been released (soon to be 3 years). Anyone know if it's still under active development?
