I found this on my browsings today, and think it's worth mentioning:

It's some time but I have used windowmaker for some years (now some years ago). It behaved very well on a 800x600 screen, it is light, can be easily controlled from the keyboard, there is a controll gui, it has useful applets etc.

In the meantime, perhaps you should try myWindowmaker IPK (and maybe post some sample/pre-tweaked config files).

My apologies for hijacking the thread. I can delete this post if necessary.

I just tried the new openbox 3.4.4 ipk and obconf 2.0.2.
What an improvement over openbox 3.3 !!!
For me the most visible and usefull changes are:
- true fullscreen windows(going over the panel),
- true maximization even for aterm(we no longer have a little margin at the edge of the screen).
- It's a little faster than the previous version.
- New Alt + tab dialog now shows all open windows even accross all desktops
- Transparent windows
- Resizing grips have been added to all edges of windows
- MoveFromEdge actions(The new MoveFromEdge actions let you move a window that is overlapping another off to its side)
It is easily themable using obconf 2.0.2(though quite slow to load) and has many more config options than obconf 1.6
I would combine this with Fbpanel 4.12(with integrated makefbmenu that generates automatically the menu scanning .desktop files). It has been tested in pdaxiiv2. It has taskbar, tooltips, menu, can be transparent, accepts mb-applets, appears on all desktops, uses less memory than matchbox-panel.
Downside:
- Keybindings configured through text files(though for me it's a plus)
- I miss ArrangeWindow action from fluxbox or icewm(?)(handy to cut/copy/paste between two Rox windows)
In fact it is what r198 is already but with everything upgraded. I find xfce not responsive enough.

I've been playing with sugar on a virtual olpc lately. It is really well thought out,and seems pretty light. It could be an excellent fit with the Z.  Getting it to work and to be reasonably easily customized on a Z might be a major pain, and consume time needed for more vital areas of development, though.

I am loving Window Maker + asclock + wmzmon.  It doesn't really have dynamic menus, but it is workable with an update-menus program like what Debian has.  It is pretty, has a very nice configuration and theme tool, and it is fast with a small memory foot print.  With configuration to improve usability on the Z it is quite nice.  Window Maker fits my threshold of performance versus usability.

I am working on building menus of fbpanel and openbox from .desktop.
Now fbpanel's menu is Ok.
Openbox's root menu should be ok soon. I plan to use pipe menu of openbox, and support card eject, adjust backlight, suspend time etc, in the future.

My choice is openbox + feh + lightweight dockapp(wmtop, wmapp).

fbpanel is additional choice for some people which is familiar with windows.
