Locally, on the desktop I use windowmaker. It's fast, simple and very
customisable. Loads of little wm apps to help you along. Thousands of
themes, easily themeable. When I need a graphical environment remotely,
I tunnel a vnc connection through ssh and the desktop there is blackbox.
Simple colours, no eye candy. Reasonably responsive even through an ISDN
