Description-en: X11 window manager inspired by Plan 9's rio
It provides a very simple and clean user interface. It is click-to-type. It
uses the X11 font system (which, unfortunately, means no Unicode support).
.
9wm does not provide virtual desktops, customization, key bindings, EWMH
support, or compositing. It does not allocate any colors, which will be
great news if you are stuck in 1993.
.
It is a great place to start if you are interested in writing a window
manager from scratch: many folks have done exactly this.
