wmii is a dynamic window manager for X11. It supports classic and dynamic window management with extended keyboard, mouse, and filesystem based remote control. It replaces the workspace paradigm with a new tagging approach.
Its minimalist philosophy attempts to not exceed 10,000 lines of code
... [More] (including all shipped utilities and libraries), to enforce simplicity and clarity. [Less]
ratpoison is a Window Manager that puts that sick little rodent out of its misery. Enjoy ratpoison's smooth keyboard handling and slick performance. Don't worry about dependancies, 'cause there ain't none! And best of all, its GNOME incompliant!
Notion is a tiling, tabbed window manager for the X window system:
* Tiling: you divide the screen into non-overlapping 'tiles'. Every window occupies one tile, and is maximized to it
* Tabbing: a tile may contain multiple windows - they will be 'tabbed'
* Static: most tiled window
... [More] managers are 'dynamic', meaning they automatically resize and move around tiles as windows appear and disappear. Notion, by contrast, does not automatically change the tiling. You're in control.
* Workspaces: each workspace has its own tiling
* Multihead: the mod_xinerama plugin provides very nice dual-monitor support
* RandR: mod_xrandr expands on mod_xinerama and picks up changes in the randr configuration without the need for restarting Notion [Less]
DSWM (Deep Space Window Manager) is a tiling keyboard-driven X11 window manager. It is based on StumpWM code and is written entirely in Common Lisp and oriented for good usability with minimum startup configuration and good integration with Emacs. The project is under hard development, so it has many experimental features.
