I like xmonad, but it's not an option.

(annoying spelling point made to reinforce the fact that few people know what a monad is)

(and even fewer could explain it)

(and I'm not one of those)

I went with insensitive clod, but only 'cause I haven't tried any of them yet.

I've been meaning too, and awesome looks the most promising from what I've seen.

Both dwm and awesome annoyed me. Therefore, my vote goes to xmonad due to the fact that I have not tried it. Yay for skewing poll results!

I haven't tried any of those three, but I think I will give awesome and xmonad a shot when I pickup my second monitor or get my parents to bring it here. Right now it's wmii ftw :P

I finally got around to trying xmonad, and I must admit that it is much nicer than the other two. However, I still prefer Openbox. :)

xnomad? :lol:

I like xmonad, though it was kind of a bitch to install (Debian testing).

Openbox sucks. Ompenbox is so much better :P

That being said, my vote goes to dwm. It works great on my '99 Powerbook.
