you know i've been thinking about this thread for a couple days. i really 
don't have one WM i love, or use exclusivly (KDE/Gnome/fvwm are all in my 
constant rotation as is TWM). For me it's all about which terminal emulator 
that you use. i mean honestly %90 of my work is done in a shell, so my 
terminal emulater has to be just so. i've pretty much settled on Konsole 
(kde's terminal emulator). It's quick, pretty customizable, tab's work 
properlly and is just quicker and much less buggy than 
multi-gnome-terminal/gnome-terminal/other-terms-i've tried (aterm, rxvt 
etc.). granted i'm also a huge fan of xterm...but as far as one of the first 
things i install on a new personal workstation is konsole.

just my 2 10
