I like WindowMaker a lot, but it might be slightly less minimalist than
what you need; reportedly it needs less resources than E, and way less
than GNOME or KDE. Among the minimalist WMs, my favorite is PWM. PWM is
the windowmanager that fluxbox got its tab feature from, and it is also
the code that the ION window manager (which is a bit too radical for my
tastes) is based on too. PWM has very nice window frames, and an
interesting approach to minimizing. (Minimizing is shading, except the
shade is a small tab that's easy to work around or move rather than a
big top-window bar.)
