I wonder what "next generation window manager" really means.

Would somebody care to explain?

My windowmanager is better than your windowmanager - why? It's a next generation windowmanager. So it's gotta be great ...

"I wonder what "next generation window manager" really means. "

It means exactly the same as everything else that is "Next Generation": nothing.

Not quite.

"Next Generation" means "more recent than previous generation".

Nothing more than that, though.
