dynamic window manager

dwm is a fast and simple window manager for X11. It manages windows in tiled and floating layouts. Either layout can be applied dynamically, optimizing the environment for the application in use and the task performed. Windows can be tagged with one or multiple tags. Selecting certain tags displays all windows that are accordingly tagged. dwm is the little brother of wmii.

            DWM is just great!
            This window manager may be not well known, but it is just awesome. Tiny and clean code base and "it just works!".

            give it a try!
