Well, I would like to see a slim, fast WM. I do not like WMs which have
hundreds of features etc. I also do not like WMs which incorporate docks etc.,
IMHO this is up to other apps.  Therefore you can guess that I have mixed

Regarding the look, NEXTSTEP is certainly a way to go, but not the only one -
i.e. I like the blackbox look very much, it's simple, elegant and not heavy
