hi matthew,

i've been using Enlightenment lately - its very pretty and doesn't look
too resource hungry to me (i'm running it on a laptop p366 with 224 mb
ram (argh or something like that, cant be bothered to do the sums ;)...

when i'm doing my computer music work, i prefer WindowMaker - its a kind
of all time classic for non-system hungry stuff - and its really pretty
too, themes are really nice... i only have a 4Mb graphics card in my
desktop machine and ran sound stuff on it very happily on a modest setup
(celeron 300Mhz, and at the time it had 192Mb ram i believe....
thesedays its 450Mhz and 482Mb ram but im using it as graphics / sound
workstation ;)....

best of luck
