How about KDE-3.1? Moahaha!
Sorry, bad yolk... but if you want a fast and stable (and standards 
compliant) WM I'd personally recommend fluxbox or blackbox.
However, that's very personal, so you should have a look at
for further tips and inspiration.

Do you mean that you want the WM to be configured to keep users from 
closing the application?
Tough one, it should probably be done from within the application itself in 
some way.

If anyone should have a spot-on match in this case, I'm kinda curious too, 
so please reply to the list.
