|jwm is a very recent 2.0|
fluxbox requires more resources and needs additional processes, i.e., fluxter, to provide a pager, than jwm.
jwm is more familiar to casual users as it is similiar to the other user inteface that one is forced to use when they buy a computer.
Advanced users usually load their preferred window manager.
I chose JWM for DSL for its familar operation and less resource demands.
v2.0 is only 6 months back. (Not bad compared to what I have 'gotten' use to on Centos thanks to the 'upstream' source).
What is pager? one more tihng to figure out...
Yes, more familiar to those of us having to run linux servers and opting for Centos (Yes I actually have **1** XP system, **2** Win2000 systems, and one NT system ;) ).
I have not felt the urge to try out KDE; too much else to figure out.
Less resources? I can appreciate that on my 64Mb Libretto.
