Now I'm no big fan of any of the newer window managers either, but
OpenLook? GAH, ARGHHH *WRETCH* Sure, it's a personal preference and
all. My choice would be FVWM, and then probably TWM. Also, I'd
completely forgetten about Bowman and AfterSTEP. Bowman was nice and
lightweight, and I think derivative of FVWM.
