I have a tie with KDE and Gnome, but since I use KDE more often, that's where my vote went. And I prefer Fluxbox for lightweight.

Tabbed Window Manager, it's my favorite... but it's not great to use for every day use, so I normally use KDE. But Other got my voice, so it can represent TWM.

I like gnome. I just think it's much easier to navigate and use.

I used Icewm for a long time but switched to Fluxbox in the last month. It's fast, I like a clean desktop and it's really customizable. Since I use the keyboard for most everything, icons just get in the way.

I prefer Blackbox (it's so lite), but I also use Enlightenment. I still use KDE sometimes as well.

XFCE! Not too minimal (TWM is ugly), but lightweight. Perfect balance for me, at least.

my other went to fvwm, if you have the time and creativity to configure it, you will never look back

as for the twm users, ill never understand that, the features are next to nothing and openbox and/or fluxbox can be lighter

i use openbox ... it has that simplistic blackboxy look as well as antialiased fonts which look more consistent with my gtk2 apps.
