PWM is a rather lightweight window manager that can have multiple client windows attached to a single frame. This feature helps keeping windows, especially the numerous xterms, organized. Since 'pwm' aims to stay small, there are no icons and frames cannot be iconified, only "shaded". Only One True (pointer) focus mode is supported: sloppy. There are no titlebar buttons. It does have workspaces, menus and Window Maker dockapp support. There is decent keyboard support and almost all the functionality is configurable.
