Small Window Manager
Window manager for computers with little memory and small screens

SWM (the Small Window Manager) was written for small computers with very little memory and small screen sizes. It is designed to run on laptops (or even PDAs). You need a minimum of about 20K of diskspace. It is configured entirely at compile time.
