WMI and the reincarnation of the keyboard

LIGHT AND SPEEDY

Author(s):

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 [1].

WMI offers extra speed that improves

the user experience on older hardware.
