[edit]

Ratpoison

http://www.nongnu.org/ratpoison/
Ratpoison is a simple Window Manager with no fat library dependencies, no fancy graphics, no window decorations, and no flashy wank. It is largely modelled after GNU Screen which still is doing wonders in virtual terminal market.

The screen can be split into non-overlapping frames. All windows are kept maximized inside their frames to take full advantage of your precious screen real estate.

All interaction with the window manager is done through keystrokes. Ratpoison has a prefix map to minimize the key clobbering that cripples Emacs and other quality pieces of software.
