Window manager recommendation...
OK, so I've tried the following window managers:
My favorites so far have been Enlightenment and XFCE, but I was also really impressed by the tabbed window management of Pekwm.
What I've found I'm looking for in a window manger is:
tabbed window management
quick (enlightenment, xfce, fluxbox)
easy to use (gnome, kde, enlightenment, xfce)
flexibility (xfce, enlightenment)......as in, it can run both kde and gnome programs
So, is there a window manager that is similar to Enlightenment (how quick/flashy/easy it was) but also has tabbed window management like Pekwm and is fairly easy to use/configure (I had trouble settiing fluxbox up how I wanted it....but I could set XFCE up fairly easily....I just don't want to manually edit config files---or rarely edit them)? What window manager do you recommend?
Re: Window manager recommendation...
I'd just like to point out that, so long as you have the GTK and QT libraries installed, and the Gnome and KDE applications installed, you can use Gnome and KDE programs in ANY Xserver WM. Including the failsafe X that starts up with a few consoles.

I've recently been using Xfce instead of my normal Fluxbox, because I'm not using the RAM space and Xfce is, I must say, very respectable. The configuration tools are godly and light compared to other WMs (except *box). I personally don't like Gnome at all because the GTK libraries haven't gotten much better lately and are not keeping up with QT. Doesn't mean I never use GTK applications, because I do (like Gaim! ^^).
That being said, don't listen to my fanboyish preferences. Pick for yourself. ^^
