Fluxbox looks nicer out of the box.

fvmw looks terrible out of the box, but if you spend enough time with it you can probably do more than for flux box. Downloading config files for fvwm is probable the quickest way.

I briefly used fluxbox bofore switching, the probably one of the main things is the fvwm pager is much nicer than fluxbox.

FVWM is more tweakable, especially if you have problems with special applications or just want a unique desktop. The downside is, you REALLY need to dig into documentation / examples to get anything on your screen that does not hurt the eye :wink:
