FVWM

http://www.fvwm.org/
Virtual desktop window manager

FVWM is an extremely powerful ICCCM-compliant multiple virtual desktop window manager for the X Window system.

Originally (long time ago) derived from twm. FVWM is intended to have a small memory footprint and a rich feature set, be extremely customizable and extendable. It is highly extensible through its module interface.

This 2.6 version includes new features like full support of the EWMH (Extended Window Manager Hints) specification, internationalization, improved window decoration code (no flickering anymore), bi-directional asian text support, FreeType font support (antialiasing), image rendering, Perl based module library, support for PNG images, side titles and much more.
