After trying a few different WMs, I settled on xmonad. It's minimalist
-- meaning it stays out of your way. It's also highly configurable, in
Haskell. It's lightweight and fast. It's a developer's WM.
I haven't been at all attracted to the various desktop managers: KDE,
GNOME, etc. What do you get for all that weight?
