lightweight and efficient window manager for X11
Descriptioncwm is a minimalist stacking window manager ported from OpenBSD. Originally inspired by evilwm, it was rewritten from scratch due to limitations in the evilwm codebase. cwm contains many features that concentrate on the efficiency and transparency of window management. cwm also aims to maintain the simplest and most pleasant aesthetic. It provides minimal decoration and screen clutter, instead having powerful controls to manage windows, launch programs etc. via key and mouse bindings. A "virtual desktop" can be simulated by the ability to group windows, and to show and hide these groups. cwm is very configurable via a simple, clearly documented .cwmrc file. If you are looking for simple menus and pretty icons, cwm is probably not going to be your cup of tea. If you don't mind a little learning curve and want something powerful and flexible, try it out.
