Window Maker

Window Maker is, in my opinion, the best window manager for X11 available. It is based on the old NeXTSTEP user interface but adds several nice twists and new features.

All of Window Maker's functionality can be controlled with the mouse or keyboard, and all shortcut keys and mouse actions are customisable. This means you can set up your desktop pretty much exactly how you like it.

I first used Window Maker in 1998 and have been running it continuously ever since. I've tried most of the other window managers out there, including some little-known and niche ones, and none of them deliver the intuitive ease-of-use that Window Maker does.

I used to present some patches here. They have since all been merged into the upstream codebase and remain here for historical interest only.

That is not to say that I have given up contributing to the project.
