screen is good... and xterm always comes with X, though it may
take a lot of options and config files to make it work to suit.

Me been following this thread, and given some thought about why I use
what I use (sawfish).  It's about getting the job done. When I last
did serious WM shopping, I wanted to use blackbox, but at the time
it didn't have bbkeys by default. I need something I could install
quickly and drop my configuration into quickly on new hosts. I've not
made significant changes in the past couple years. I looked at some
WM posted here and they all look like they fill a niche, would even
like to try one or two, but my setup really has no complaints from
me, so it may be a while...
