FYI, fluxbox might be an alternative for that purpose as well (my
choice), but there are others like fvwm2, pekwm, icewm, etc...  I use
fluxbox on coppermine (<=800MHz) , on penryn (2.20 GHz), on lemote
mini-pcs, and it works pretty nice/light on all of them, besides being
good looking if you want it to be, :-)
