Wmaker can be tweaked to run pretty fast, if you turn off all special
effects, gradients etc. and carefully choose your dockapps. For a newbie
switching from Windows I'd also recommend IceWM: it is about as fast as
fvwm and looks more familiar and less confusing for a Windows user (has
taskbar, for example).
