abarbarian Posted March 11, 2018 Author Share Posted March 11, 2018 Window Maker Live: Cool Retro Look, Even Cooler Performance WindowMaker itself has been around since 1997. It is an X11 window manager originally designed to provide integration support for the GNUstep Desktop Environment, a free adaptation of Cocoa (formerly OpenStep). A framework with application development tools for Unix-like operating systems and Microsoft Windows, Window Maker is part of the GNU Project. If you are into retro computing, you will marvel at Window Maker's success in reproducing the cool look and feel of the Nextstep user interface. That nostalgia is reminiscent of Thinkpad T61 technology. If that level of computing nostalgia is not your passion, WML's user interface can bring you a productivity boost without the excessive GUI bloat of modern-day Linux desktop environments. The window manager is loaded with features and speed. It is easy to configure. It is easy to use. A luverly article on probably the best WM ever. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
