WMI and the reincarnation of the keyboard
LIGHT AND SPEEDY
WMI is a lean and fast window manager with good
support for keyboard control.
Keyboard fans who prefer a lean
environment have a difficult
time. Most window managers
have menus, panels, or even icons, but
launching individual programs is
restricted to point & click. Large-scale
projects such as KDE and Gnome
include sophisticated animations and
other functions that many users do not
need, and these functions have the effect
of slowing down the window manager.
Window Manager Improved (WMI) is
a fast and lean window manager with a
special emphasis on the keyboard .
WMI offers extra speed that improves
the user experience on older hardware.
