LinuxPower.org: The Wonderful World of Dockapps

Jul 12, 1999, 00:14 (1 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Christian Schaller)

"There are many windowmanagers available out there, but there is only one Window Maker. This is not going to be a review of that incredible piece of code, but a presentation of all those nifty little apps that make Window Maker truly stand out. Many of these little apps might run in other environments as well, like Afterstep and the GNOME panel, but the large majority of these were made with Window Maker in mind. And it is my claim that when you first have let yourself be pulled into this sphere of wonders, it doesn't matter how many themes Raster makes for Enlightenment or Marko Macek makes for ICE, you are first and foremost a Window Maker acolyte after that. There are of course many more ultracool dockapps than those I describe here, so don't despair if I don't describe the app that is going to make your life complete, it might very well be out there."
