Yes, they're DE's.  Openbox has probably replaced fluxbox as everyone's
favorite stacking window manager, and dwm is one of the better tiling ones.  
As mentioned, blackbox is no longer developed at all--I know it's still
available in FreeBSD ports, but haven't installed it in years.

I believe XFCE counts as a DE too. There's also LXDE, which, as the DE
indicates, is a desktop environment, but somewhat lighter.
