    i use enlightenment, i just installed it off my distro cd's.

    i use it for 2 main reasons. 1) if u have no idea what u are doing it it quite hard to figure out once u turn off help popups, so other people cant screw with my comp.

    2) once u have it worked out it is very quick to do almost anything, and the multiple desktop setup it uses is brilliant.

    I use kahakai (http://kahakai.sourceforge.net/) and fluxbox (when I break kahakai ). They're both fast and highly configureable.

    XFCE4

    Good balance between kde bloatiness and fluxbox frugality.

    XFCE4 rules, nice and light weight, only loads what i want it too, and doesnt eat all my desktop space

    I use fluxbox, it's just very simple, doesn't take up much mem, you can run anything on it.... what else can you ask for.
    At first, it may not be very easy to use but after a while it's the best!!!!

    Kahakai looks interesting. Am going to try it. Does it come with root menu?

    the file ~/.kahakai/menu is read everytime you right-click on the desktop.. so you can edit the menu file while the wm is running without having to re-read the conf/menu file... very nice feature.. ~/.kahakai/menu is *very* easy to understand... just look at it and you'll get the syntax down...

    XFce

    i am an xfce user. It is fast, and pretty, like a girl, who is pretty, but can also run fast.
