evilwm

evilwm

evilwm is a minimalist window manager for the X Window System. It works by drawing a one pixel border around each window, and providing convenient keyboard shortcuts for doing everything. Whilst providing almost everything a user would want (including virtual desktops), and working at a blinding speed, it is extremely compact in size.

It maximises screen real estate and provides good keyboard control. It is currently based on aewm.
