Lightweight window manager
Pawm is a simple, small and functional window manager for the X Window system. It manages your X client windows so you can resize, move, minimize them, just that. It's not a 'desktop' and doesn't offer a huge pile of options, just the facilities needed to run your X applications through a friendly and easy to use interface. If you want to run X apps and don't have the time, space or interest in installing kde or gnome, then try pawm. With Pawm you can minimize windows that are placed on a small auto-hide bar at the bottom for a better access to all apps. It also includes a small clock on the bar that can be easily disabled. The libraries included with your XFree86 system are enough to complie pawm- no extra libraries are needed.
