X11, Window Managers Most of you will be familiar with Silicon Graphics, Inc., once the proud leader in the graphics workstations market with their high-end MIPS workstations, running the UNIX System V based IRIX operating system. The company has been in steady decline for a long time now, and two years ago it put an end to its MIPS product line, favouring processors from Intel. Back to IRIX - it has many assets and good features (XFS, for instance), and the IRIX Interactive Desktop was certainly one of them. Sadly, it never properly made its way out of IRIX, but this is now being worked on, with the full support from SGI.

... I'm not intereseted in starting a flame thread, BUT ...

Can somebody please tell me what is so special about "yet another wm for X.org"?

I never used a SGI Workstation and when I'm looking at the screenshot I would call it a windowmanager clone.

It would be great if the article was telling me something about the product beside the fact that it exists.

Best Regards
