Microscopic Window Manager
MIcroscopic Window Manager (MIWM) is a fast, small, minimalist, and extremely reliable window manager. It is designed to do the job very simply and unobtrusively, without constraining power users. It features optional auto-tiling, desktop cleanup, a user-defined root menu, optional previewing of hidden windows, variable numbers of virtual desktops, and configurable window behavior. It includes a simple, very effective memory management utility for leak detection.
