	Here's one for icewm. I used to use kde but on this slow box of mine it was just too hungry. I tried Window Maker for a while, but couldn't get comfortable with it. With ice pref it is easy to configure icewm. I used to have dfm installed to handle desktop icons but I don't bother anymore. I like working with just the task bar buttons and start menu.
