What desktop or window manager you mostly use and why.

Have some non-GhostBSD related questions, or want just to chit-chat about anything that is not necessarily related to GhostBSD? This is the forum for you.

I have been a long time Xfce4 user and then have Fluxbox as my backup wm, but I am trying out GhostBSD and I am enjoying using MATE.

I use:
1. Mac OSX El Capitan;
2. LXDE on Ubuntu;
3. KDE on FreeBSD;
4. Mate on GhostBSD.
Everything for development (web, mobile and desktop).

To me, DEs are out, if a window manager has its keybindings convoluted (read openbox), is out. I cannot waste time going to menus and clicking. Not to mention the RAM waste, thus, speed is where is at; looks mean nothing to me.

JWM, Icewm, and Ratpoison.

xfe -file manager
mirage -image viewer
nano -word processor (save everything in .txt)
scrot -take snapshots
flburn - burn isos (small and simple)
hexchat
xdgmenumaker - includes menus for JWM, menumaker does not.
Desktop Celeron with 4 gigs RAM - icewm/jwm/ratpoison - FreeBSD 11.1/GhostBSD 11.1
KISS - Keep It Simple, Stupid
