Projects / flwm


Flwm is an X window manager designed to be user friendly and use the absolute minimum amount of screen real estate. It has no icons, using a pop-up menu to select hidden or new windows, and sideways titlebars. Flwm is also designed to achieve Gnome, KDE, and Motif compatibility simultaneously and has also been tested with many SGI programs that normally require 4DWM.

            flwm IS fast and light
            I just tried flwm 0.16 on my home PC, a 486 with 16M of RAM. It's really fast and light, just like the name says.

            I'm also running it as the window manager for a vnc desktop I keep running at work. It helps keep the clutter off the desktop.
