Default The Comprehensive List of Window Managers for Unix

This is a list of every freely available Window Manager I'm aware of (191 as of 20090328). New testing/alpha/beta versions won't be listed when a stable version is available. You can sort the table on a particular field by clicking on the header row (should work in any browser). Note: in IE the buttons make the columns disappear but they won't reappear. They work in Firefox.
I'm adding non-English WMs, with the caveat that English is the only language I speak. Perhaps I'll stick to projects that have been listed in freshmeat? For these reasons non-English projects may not have version number listings.
I'll be adding reviews/notes occasionally. Because of the size of the list I've placed some limits: nothing alpha quality, nothing that hasn't been updated in more than two years (unless it was highly influential ... or I just feel like it). --- Giles Orr

Thanks for the link man! I finally found what I've been looking for. I know it's going to sound silly but I'm not talking about any WM, I'm actually glad about the Terminus font. Great fixed width font (slashed zero, no 1/i confusion).

Calm Window Manager (CWM) as listed on your web-page is dead project and moreover full of bugs. CWM in the base of OpenBSD is practically a fork of that version. I am aware of FreeBSD port of OpenBSD version of CWM.

... also the Openbox 2.x is based on Blackbox, the Openbox 3.x is written from scratch.
