You need to install a window manager.

twm(1) idn't good enough for you?

evilwm
blackbox
e16 (or whatever they have changed the name too this week)
aewm

are all fairly degenerate wastes of memory.

But it will not do much good unless you
have also bothered to install browsers and such.

Try xfce4. It's fairly light and more functional than most WM's / DE's for it's size.

Don't install the meta package though, or trim off stuff that you don't need as you feel fit.
