Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

A matter of changing tastes.

"Alternative" window managers certainly have their place. Linux is about choice. On the first computer I installed linux on (back in 1999), I found KDE and GNOME too heavy and sluggish, so I used XFCE and was quite satisfied. I even tried WindowMaker from time to time, just for variety. Today I'm a KDE fanboy (thanks to such things as Amarok and Katapult), but who knows where my tastes will be four months from now. With linux, I'll have the choice to decide what best suits me, and I like that.
