This page is designed to display the various ways the GUI portion (X Windows) can be configured to totally configure the look of your machine.
KDE is designed to look very much like a Windows (tm) based interface - it is a fast, useful and compliant Window Manager that has an extensive array of applications which conform to it's overall design.
Blackbox is a ICCCM complaint Windowmanager which is designed to be lightweight with a low memory consumption. Blackbox is best used on X Windows systems that have low (12 Meg or less) memory.
Enlightenment - Choice of a new power generation. E began life as an FVWM variant, however Rasterman & Mandrake have done an excellent job in turning it into a fully useable WM. E is not for use by people with memory constraints, requiring between 24 and 64 meg of RAM to run well - don't let this put you off, E is a fully ICCCM compliant, fully themeable, customisable WM that is also GNOME compliant.
Window Maker - WM has been built around the NEXTSTEP interface that "black" hardware made famous. WM has a light memory footprint, is fully themeable, has many user definable preferences and more. It can be used on older systems as well as more powerful ones.
GNOME - Not a Window Manager (you need to use one of the above WM's as well as GNOME) is a complete desktop environment - comprising many small applets and larger applications to form an X Windows "experience" GNOME is also fully themeable (through the use of GTK-Themes) and completely customisable.
