Perhaps I'm missing something obvious? Have you tried fvwm? It's what came with the first Linux system I set up myself (slackware from literally a couple of dozen of floppies, kernel was in the 0.99's back then), and no other desktop has ever won me over. All I do is start X applications from terminals, and for that I want it fast, lean, and with lots of desktops I can switch between. --D.
