JWM (Joe's Window Manager) is a lightweight stacking window manager for the X Window System written by Joe Wingbermuehle. JWM is written in C and uses only Xlib at a minimum. Support for the following can be added as compile-time options:

It provides an interface similar to Windows 98 with a modern-looking appearance and it can support some GNOME, Motif and Extended Window Manager Hints.
