And I run GNOME, KDE, XFCE, IceWM, Enlightenment (waiting for E17),
Fluxbox, Openbox, windowmaker, Afterstep, and several others all on an
installation of Ubuntu Warty upgraded to Breezy.  The Window
Manager/Desktop Environment isn't all that important to the distro's
pluses and minuses.
Of course, for normal day-to-day work and play I prefer the wonderful
and unbeatable IceWM.
