Window Managers Window Maker is an X11 window manager originally designed to provide integration support for the GNUstep Desktop Environment. In every way possible, it reproduces the elegant look and feel of the NEXTSTEP user interface. It is fast, feature rich, easy to configure, and easy to use. It is also free software, with contributions being made by programmers from around the world.

WM is the 'Official window manager of the GNUstep project'.

If you use GNUstep, however, you'll notice that it brings its own Dock, Clip, and Desktop.

Where does WM fit in? It provides Important(TM) things like mouse and keyboard control, workspaces, sound server (still alive?), and *ta-da* Window Management - title bars, window resizing, and icons.

Nice, small memory footprint. Always has, always will.
