Gnome isn't a window manager, its a "Desktop Environment", I'm not sure
what the current favourite window manager to use in the Gnome
environment is, I used to use icewm-gnome (currently I'm totally
degnomed as I can't see the need for the bloat, I use no gnome apps,
there's alternatives for nearly everything). So, if you really don't
want window maker, install one of the millions of other different window
manglers, I'd suggest trying sawfish.
