I don't see any suicide battle in this - WM is stable and far
less resource consuming than any other desktop environment. Yet
it is a complete (while slim) environment rather than a bare
bones window manager. I haven't seen anything in WM that crashes
all the time for the last 7 years. This cannot be said about
other desktop environments.

I've tried different enviromments in the past, have even been
using GNOME for the last half year (just for the kick of an
occsasional change), but so far I've always been back to WM
after a while. I don't see why this should be a political
question or anything related to some kind of sentimentality. If
soemthing does the job better than others, then it is a valid
and good choice, nothing less, nothing more.
