Does exactly what I want it to do: manage windows
It runs fast and stable...
use x11-wm/fluxbox-devel and not x11-wm/fluxbox
The "development" version is more stable, the only reason it's still a  
development version is the lack of documentation...

I used gnome when I starting out with FreeBSD a few years back, and it  
worked pretty well to, bit easyer...
