Window Maker - your NeXT window manager

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.



Get to know Linux: Window Maker

,----[ Quote ]
| Continuing with our introduction to old-school Linux window managers, I would
| like to bring to you Window Maker. The Window Maker window manager was
| designed to look and feel like the old NeXT GUI (which was spearheaded by
| Steve Jobs after he was forced out of Apple.) Window Maker is another entry
| in the long list of lightweight, snappy window managers that can bring new
| life to old computers. Window Maker is a very stable desktop for the Linux
| operating system and is often considered one of the most universal and useful
| window managers available.


How I became an Openbox fanatic

,----[ Quote ]
| Prior to buying my new eee pc, I thought I'd finally gotten the ol' Linux
| thing figured out. I liked having a desktop chock full of bells and whistles
| and visual effects and nautilus-integrated apps. I used Mint with the AWN
| dock and a truckload of Compiz Fusion effects on my enormous,
| relatively-powerful laptop, and it did every single thing I could think of
| for it to do.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
