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.

After reading this article i installed Archlinux with windowmaker and tint2. I am really amazed about how easy it works and especially about how low the footprint is. I am a linux user for i think 6 years or so, so i am not afraid to get my hands dirty in the commandline. But i can understand that this is not really a thing that new users would even bother to use.

What do you mean? Window Maker is fully GUI configurable.
