Many X apps these days require a system tray. GNOME and KDE have system tray applets enabled in their panels by default. WindowMaker doesn't have a panel. It supports DockApps, which are, of course, much cooler. :-P

During the ten years of my love-hate relationship with X-Windows, I've often tried and enjoyed using full-fledged desktop environment (starting with KDE and later sometimes GNOME too), but, given time, I always gravitate back to WindowMaker.
