& Window Manager
- is a powerful Open Source graphical desktop environment for Unix
workstations. It combines ease of use, contemporary functionality, and
outstanding graphical design with the technological superiority of the
Unix operating system.
- The GNOME Project is an effort to create a complete, free and
easy-to-use desktop environment for users, as well as a powerful
application development framework for software developers. GNOME is
part of The GNU Project, and is Free Software.
- is a lightweight desktop environment for various UNIX systems. The
goal is keep most system resources for the applications, and not to
consume all memory and CPU usage with the desktop environment. XFce is
based on GTK+.
- is a desktop environment (XPde) and a window manager (XPwm) for
Linux. It tries to make easier for Windows XP users to use a Linux box.
- is a fast, light window manager without all those annoying library
- is a completely themeable, highly configurable Window Manager.
- is based on the Blackbox 0.61.1 code. Fluxbox looks like blackbox and
handles styles, colors, window placement and similar thing exactly like
blackbox (100% theme/style compability).
- is an X window manager that tries to make your display look and feel
like an Amiga Workbench screen. It is fully functional and can do all
the usual window manager stuff, like moving and resizing windows.
- is an extensible window manager using a Lisp-based scripting language
--all window decorations are configurable and all user-interface policy
is controlled through the extension language.
- is a fast to use and simple window manager for the X11 Window System.
It combines the best features of other window managers and GUIs. Themes
can customize the look, user can customize the feel.
- stands for: "Fast Light Window Manager". "Flwm is my attempt to
combine the best ideas I have seen in several window managers. The
primary influence and code base is from wm2 by Chris Cannam."
Maker] - is an X11 window manager originally
designed to provide integration support for the GNUstep Desktop
Environment. It is fast, feature rich, easy to configure, and easy to
- Originally based on the look and feel of the NeXTStep interface, it
has evolved into its own creature.
- is a tiling tabbed window manager designed with keyboard users in
- is an extremely powerful ICCCM-compliant multiple virtual desktop
window manager for the X Window system. Development is active, and
support is excellent.
- is a minimalist window manager. "Minimalist" here doesn't mean it's
too bare to be usable - it just means it omits a lot of the stuff that
make other window managers unusable.
- is a Windows 95/98/NT like window manager for X Window System. It
allows Windows 95/98/NT users to use X Window System without hesitation
and X Window System users to use Windows 95/98/NT without hesitation.
- is a fork of the Waimea window manager, with the intent to create a
language agnostic scriptable window manager, while maintaining the
original features of Waimea, and extending upon them.
/ wmii] - Window Manager Improved
(wmi) is a highly customizable keyboard- and mouse- driven X11 window
manager which supports conventional, tabbed and tiled window management
with low memory usage and a vi-alike user interaction. window
manager improved 2 (wmii) is the next generation of wmi. Due
to a complete rewrite it is highly modularized and uses a new
configuration and inter-process communication interface which is
oriented on the 9p protocol of the plan9 operating system.
Screen] - is a full-screen window manager that
multiplexes a physical terminal between several processes, typically
interactive shells. Each virtual terminal provides the functions of the
DEC VT100 terminal and, in addition, several control functions from the
ANSI X3.64 (ISO 6429) and ISO 2022 standards (e.g., insert/delete line
and support for multiple character sets). There is a scrollback history
buffer for each virtual terminal and a copy-and-paste mechanism that
allows the user to move text regions between windows.
- is a text-mode windowing environment: it draws and manages text
windows on a text-mode display, like X11 does for graphical windows. It
has a built-in window manager and terminal emulator, and can be used as
server for remote clients in the same style as X11. It can display on
Linux console, on X11 and inside itself.
- is a simple Window Manager with no fat library dependencies, no fancy
graphics, no window decorations, and no rodent dependence. It is
largely modelled after GNU Screen which has done wonders in the virtual
terminal market. All interaction with the window manager is done
- is a minimalistic window manager for the X Window System licensed
under the GNU General Public License.
Managers for X] - is a guide to window managers and
desktop environments for The X Window System, as used mainly by Linux
and UNIX operating systems.
