aewm is a minimalist window manager for X11. It has no nifty features, but is light on resources and extremely simple in appearance. It should eventually make a good reference implementation of the ICCCM. A few separate programs are included to handle running programs, switching between windows, etc.

CTWM is a highly-configurable window manager based
on the classic TWM window manager. It supports
xpms, multiple workspaces, advanced icon
managment, animated icons and backgrounds, 3D
titles and borders, etc. It offers rudimentary
Gnome support and is backwards-compatible with TWM.
FVWM-Crystal aims to create an easy to use, pretty, but also powerful desktop environment for Linux or other Unix-like operating systems. It uses the following programs: FVWM as a window manager and "main core"; different ways to provide icons on the desktop including support for many file managers and custom commands; xterm, aterm, mrxvt, or urxvt as terminal emulators; MPD or XMMS2 as music players (there's built-in support for controlling these programs), and several other tools for different functions, like setting a wallpaper or taking screenshots.

dvtm brings the concept of tiling window management, popularized by X11-window managers like dwm, to the console. As a console window manager, it tries to make it easy to work with multiple console based programs like vim, mutt, cmus, or irssi. dvtm is intended to be used where X11 isn't available or over SSH. In conjunction with dtach, it can be seen as a lightweight alternative to GNU screen.

i3 is a dynamic tiling window manager. Its key features are correct implementation of Xinerama (workspaces are assigned to virtual screens, and it does the right thing when attaching new monitors) and XrandR support (which is still unfinished). Both horizontal and vertical columns can be used in tiling. There is a special focus is on writing clean, readable, and well documented code. i3 uses xcb for asynchronous communication with X11, and has several measures to be very fast. i3 is primarily targeted at advanced users and developers.

Ratpoison is a simple window manager with no large library
dependencies, no fancy graphics, no window decorations, and no rodent
dependence. It is largely modeled after GNU Screen, which has done
wonders in the virtual terminal market. All interaction with the
window manager is done through keystrokes. ratpoison has a prefix map
to minimize the key clobbering that cripples EMACS and other quality
pieces of software. All windows are maximized and kept maximized to
avoid wasting precious screen space.

Damn Small Linux Not is a desktop oriented Linux
distribution based on Damn Small Linux. It uses a
modern 2.6 Kernel and GTK 2 applications, but like
Damn Small Linux, it strives to be compact yet
user friendly. It will run well on systems of
300MHz with 64 MB of RAM or greater.

Goodgoat Linux is a simple to use Linux
distribution that can be run from a USB drive,
hard drive, or CD-ROM. Rather than
overwhelming users with a multitude of
applications, it aims to have the best utility for
each job. In addition to including the latest
software, it makes it easy to share a
computer's hard drive over a network.

wmweather displays your current local weather conditions. After supplying a 4-character METAR station identifier code (most major airports have one), it shows station ID, time of the last update, temperature, dew point, pressure, humidity, and wind speed. The various entries can be forced to display in a variety of different units.

treewm is a window manager that tries to implement a new concept. In addition
to the client windows, the user can create desktops which can themselves
contain windows and desktops. By arranging the windows in such a tree, the user
is able to manage tasks efficiently.
Fluxspace seeks to add advanced desktop functionality to pure window managers, like Fluxbox. The approach is to leverage existing tools, like Rox Filer and Idesk, with a flexible and modular Python API. Existing modules support desktop icons, panels, dockapp startup and swapping, and wallpaper management. Current features allow each workspace to have its own unique panel, icons, wallpaper, and running applets. Creating new Python modules is easy.

FBUI is a small, fast in-kernel GUI windowing system for Linux that supports overlapping windows and windows on every virtual console. Its core is currently about 50kB large. See "libfbui" for sample programs and API. This project, while fun and challenging to develop, is now defunct in recognition of the security problems that putting a windowing system inside the kernel gives rise to. The code base remains available, however, in case parts of it may prove useful to the public.
