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."

Both fluxbox and afterstep are a good choice for memory challenged systems ( < 128/256MB RAM).

Nice effort from the author to give away a reference to the mentioned dektop enviroments.

Though as a side note he could have mentioned ~/.fluxbox/init #for example to set "fbsetbg -l" as rootcommand so any last loaded wallpaper with "fbsetbg" is automatically loaded the next time you login, and ~/.fluxbox/keys #for assigning hotkeys to your favorite applications.
