I have a hard question to ask and I realize that there are a thousand answers to this question. I am replacing my XP system with a FreeBSD 6.1 system. I finished installing it last night and cvsuped. Now I need to choose a window manager. There are what seems like hundreds of different WM in the ports collection and there is no way I will be able to find the time to read them all and get any kind of good idea on what each one does. I am hoping a few people form the list could e-mail me what they like and for what reason. I want something lean and fast but I want to have my cake and eat it to because I do want something that is not strait up ugly and is functional. KDE seems like it is bloated so I was considering Gnome. I have also been reading about enlightenment and it sounds interesting. I have looked into Fluxbox and it also seems like it would do the trick. Would I be better off just going with Gnome or KDE? I realize once I start installing apps that I will probably wind up installing something that uses Gnome or KDE libraries so I am going to wind up bloating my system any ways right? gnome and kde are both bloated, why not xfce or fluxbox, they are both lean and fast.
