I'm looking to change the wm to something more modern. I'm in favor of xfce wink.gif

Looking to see what the community has interst in. Now I know a lot of people have a problem with xfce because of memory usuage but I will be working on optimizing it as much as possible.

But throw out suggestions

my vote would be for either metacity, qlwm or ede, though it might take a helluva lot of tweaking to be anywhere near as nice as ice/rox or openbox.

The argument I see for qlwm is really based on using qt interfaces for webkit and as much of the other system stuff as possible. Probably the degree of interface work to make it enjoyable to use (webkit with the qt front end too, for that matter) would prove prohibitive

Same sort of argument for ede--- making as many system widgets as possible in fltk and running a light fltk desktop would be reasonably efficient

metcity is ..well... gtk2. I'm not sure how really light it can go, though.

I really like xfce, but I have never had it stay stable on a system or distro I've used it on extensively. Maybe it's just me, but I'd be a little nervous about it as a default interface

I suppose in the end icewm/rox is pretty good smile.gif
