A look at the Wmii Window Manager



If you’d rather rule the desktop from your keyboard, try the powerful Wmii window manager.

WIMP ("Windows, Icons, Menus, Pointing device") is a common method of interacting with GUIs. It involves controlling menus, windows, and colorful buttons by pointing and clicking. According to Anselm Garbe, the author of Wmii (Window Manager Improved 2), this method is inefficient and obsolete.

Wmii (Figure 1) is a complete rework of the Wmi window manager. Wmii supports keyboard controls throughout, just like its predecessor Wmi. This extensive system of keyboard controls means that there is no need for a mouse, although you can still use one if you like.
