Linux users - Which window manager do you prefer ?

I am using Enlightenment 17 on Ubuntu 5.04.

Have a look:

I prefer kde over gnome, but I haven't really tried any others besides those 2.
Helios
[edit] Between kde and gnome [/edit] GNOME.. takes less memory and just better..

DON'T USE LINXU BTW, IT's NOT FOR YOU =D

Do you agree with me, noobie4life? Very Happy

and how is that ?

If E17 takes more memory (which is not true...go here www.get-e.com), so how it's more faster and candy eye then any other windows manger ?

KDE - The more eye candy, the better Smile

For the moment, I have tried KDE, and now Gnome, I prefer Gnome, but when I ll know more things about GNU/Linux, I'll try an other WM like fluxbox, it seems it's using less memory, so it'll be great fo my pc (P3~733 Mhz and 224 Mo SDRAM) .

Sorry but I talked about the wms that I use.. those are KDE and GNOME.

I never tried E17 so I can't give my opinion(s) about it.

I will try it later though.

Thx for the link.

KDE - because it's default in ASPLinux Smile

I use XFCE, even though sometimes I use kde. I kinda don't like gnome... don't know why but it doesn't amuse me... now the other two... they're great!
Ranfaroth
I use XFCE too, because it's a bit like GNOME, but lighter and faster.
E17 is too eye candy for me Wink
And KDE is definitly too heavy and bloated..
blackant
Gnome for me... it is not too fancy and it is neat for me. Razz

I've only used KDE, so I don't really know what I like best.

I use KDE because it does what I want the way I ask it to. I've used just about every one out there (KDE from ver 1.1 on, Gnome from ver 1.0 on, Fluxbox, Openbox, Blackbox, IceWM, XFCE ver 3.4 on I think, PWM, TWM, EvilWM, UWM/UDE, Windowmaker, E15,16,17, Oroborus, Ion, 9wm and some I forgot).

I think that I sort of know why some people don't quite prefer Gnome, but don't know why. Its because of the apps that usually come by default for system and user administration. They're somewhat harder to use and XFCE seems to have taken that problem head-on and made these jobs easier.

If I couldn't use KDE, I think I'd rather IceWM or Windowmaker because they're really fast, but have lots of features, like Gnome and XFCE (check out the juicy default desktop for Vector Linux! That's IceWM! The themes!)
