Default Windomaker and NeXT-like window managers

Hi to all

I am currently using windowmaker as my main desktop window manager (FreeBSD 7 amd64 release) and I like it very much. I like it's simplicity, configuration without editing text conf files, its speed and much more........

I think that windomaker development "stalled" , since the last version update was more than 2 years ago. For this reason I want to use any other window manager "windomaker like" (except afterstep, which I don't like at all)

I did some googling, and I found that the etoile to be the most close to windomaker and up to date. Did any of you try this ? Any other recommendations from the ports collection?
