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.

I remember wmaker. It served me well over the years. It replaced afterstep for me back then. And I never looked back. Nowadays I do use a desktop environment (KDE), but I still have fond memories of this WM.

And guys, geez, it's a window-manager. Not a desktop environment. It's not at all trying to achieve the things a desktop env is trying to achieve. It just manages windows for X and gives you some menus so you don't have to type as much.

I'm completely agree with you.

I still have some old computers (PII and PII mostly) all they running RH73 and WM and a lot of dockapps, and everytime I turn them on and see WM in action I get a lot of nostalgia.

I like also see WM on an every new GNUStep version.

WM guys, please don't let it die!
