One thing I always disliked about using Unix on the desktop was the X windows environment. I’ve always found it to be kludgy, and I thought that all of the window managers were hard to configure, and difficult to use. Then I discovered WindowMaker. WindowMaker has really nice, clean lines, is incredibly easy to set up and configure, and is nice to use. The only downside is that it’s incredibly poorly documented (a failing common to a lot of free software). Maybe I’ll be able to write some documentation for it once I finish working on the book.
