[SATLUG] Choosing a Display Manager

I'm trying to decide which display manager to run under the FluxBox
window manager. I guess the generic one is xdm, but Gnome uses gdm, KDE
uses kdm, and then I think there are a few others around. I've always
used xdm just because it was the default, but a while ago I installed
Ubuntu Studio and that runs with Gnome by default, and gdm.
I ran FluxBox over gdm for a while, then replaced it with xdm, just
because it seemed to be less aligned with any particular windowing
system. I run apps from everywhere: Gnome, KDE, X, whatever.
I understand that usually, the choice of the display manager is
determined by the window or desktop manager, but in this case it isn't.
So I'm asking: for the users who don't run either Gnome or KDE: how did
you decide on the display manager? What are the factors which are
considerations in picking one or the other?
