So far, thank's for your hints. It's very interesting to read the
different opinions... (this is still one of the great things about
FreeBSD: a great community)
I think AfterStep isn't intersting anymore, actually - I really like afterstep
Most users recommend fluxbox or a very slight, tiling window manager,
In the next few days, I will try OpenBOX and xmonad. Then, I have tested
enough wms ...
