Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

Afterstep has a lot of WindowMaker-ism a dock (wharf) and the way it minimizes apps like WindowMaker.

Similar in look and feel and share some compatiblity in function.

However, the code bases for Afterstep and Windowmaker are vastly different. I believe Windowmaker came about because some people were dissatisfied with Afterstep.
