Which Window manager?

Which Window manager? - 05/03/04 11:21 AM

Well ive been using FreeBSD for a while, with KDE, and have thought about trying another window manager. KDE is nice and all, but other window managers look a hell of a lot better in my opinion. So just post a window manager that you think would be good for me to try, and why. A screen shot would be cool too if you wanted to put one in.

There's a group of Fbsd users in my class, and all of em swear by fluxbox. I use Gnome for simplicity's sake. I also like enlighenment though.

i'm afraid to say infinite i like fluxbox alot. i always used to use gnome. the i discovered fluxbox. there is a lot less cluuter and i just find it easier to use.

i use enlightenment as well and it's pretty good. the only problem i have with it are those stupid epplets and their multiple starting up ways. oh well. it's an easy fix, but it keeps coming back. i have a way to fix that too, but i haven't gotten around to it yet. lol. and then there are the dealios with the curser moving around after minimizing windows. is anyone else having that problem? anyway, i can't wait for DR-17 to come out. and oohhhh...just saw that a new version came out! well, that's my suggestion.//

I used KDE when I first started wit linux. mostly because of ease of use. never like gnome, graphics turned me off for some reason. But now all I use is enlightenment. it's by far the best (for me). you can't beat the graphics, the multiple desktop display, no icons, no bars, plus i love some of the effects they have. I like the fact that you can strech one window out over 4 desktops and jus snap back and forth between it. bla bla, there's too many reasons why I like it.

fluxbox is the only way to go. enlightenment is okay, but theres just something about fluxbox that i like. I tried the xgl/compiz and liked the idea, but i missed fluxbox. i'd like to have (some of) the xgl/compiz features on fluxbox.
