I'm so used to Fluxbox...

...that I don't think I'll really ever use anything else. And I have a relatively new, fast computer.

I've been toying with the idea of trying Openbox, but my needs are met with Fluxbox, and if it ain't broke, why fix it?

Same here. Fast computer and all. I try the new ones every now and then only to discover fluxbox is still king. Perhaps Beryl or Kwin will gain on it eventually. Perhaps... :-)

I loved Fluxbox, but once I switched to Openbox, I fell in love to an even greater degree. Customizable in many ways, and faster. Loads almost instantaneously on even old hardware, while Fluxbox tends to take about 2-5 seconds.

I also prefer the theming engine for Openbox.

Regardless, both are great WMs with a lot to offer.
