Lightweight Window Managers: Tools of Choice

Chuck Talk writes “Although most every publication is busy discussing both KDE and GNOME as the primary window managers of choice for Linux distributions, there are alternatives available to Linux users. GNU/Linux is built upon the idea that a user should have choice – something that the proprietary world has yet to fathom. The mass appeal of the lightweight window manager does not get the attention it deserves in the mainstream press, largely because of the failure to understand the reason for alternatives.”
