After running Debian for a while I got to wondering, which window manager would offer the best and quickest performance? The first GUI I used was Gnome 2.8 and that was a good experience, but it lacks a lot of functionality. KDE 3.3.2 is also very nice, but is extremely large. KDE runs its applications very well. So, I got to thinking, does the smaller window managers, such as fluxbox, offer the same kind of support as the larger ones?
DSL (Dam Small Linux), which is at version 0.9.3, is a wonderful linux distro and offers the fully configured fluxbox. This distro is made very well and has caused me to consider using a smaller more compact GUI on my Debian HDD.
What do you guys think?
