Window Managers "If you want an adaptable window manager that doesn't drain your resources, try Openbox. Its latest version, 3.4.2, released this month, has several visual improvements and dozens of new usable features. Since it's easy to customize, many people replace their stock window managers with Openbox. It can run inside both GNOME and KDE (but not Xfce), replacing their native window managers. It can also be used as a lightweight desktop environment on its own."

I recently tried quite a few different window managers and desktop environments. I've found myself using Openbox most of the time. It's small, fast, and configures the way that I want it. I use fbpanel to keep track of open windows and have a more complete menu for the less frequently used programs.
