Way back in the before times[1] I used MWM. It sucked but was better than 
Windows 3.1. I then used fvwm, which was better. I found Windowmaker, 
which I preferred to fvwm (and windows 95). After that I discovered 
Enlightenment, which I used for a while (and preferred to windows 98 
*and* NT) before discovering Saw(mill|fish) and Gnome. I preferred this to 
Windows XP. I just switched to Metacity[2] and I have yet to find things 
that irk me. 

[1] OK, it wasn't all that long ago - 1995 - still before I used Linux
[2] As part of an upgrade to Red Hat 9
