startx and xfce4. In addition to shipping in most distros, it has easily
replaceable themes -- three or four dozen usually come shipped,
ranging from clones of other windowing managers through
specialized high-contrast, dark, bright, B5-flavored... 

Starting a new theme is as easy as copying a directory under a
new name and pulling out gimp to work on a bunch of xpm
