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

I don't care which wm we use as long as it does the following:

easy to use
quick and responsive
pretty (easily themable)
support for .desktop files or other way of easily generating menus
support for screen rotation
window resizing
custom key bindings
applets/doclets (whatever you call them) that give you easy access to commonly used features, ie mount/unmount of cards, network, date/time,....

so far I have tried several such as FluxBox, IceWM, OpenBox, MatchBox, Enlightenment, KDE, and each has their own strengths and weaknesses... i have not tried xfce yet.

i think discussing the pros and cons of each wm would eventually lead to an informed decision about which wm would provide a better Zaurus user experience.
