"As a window manager, Sawfish is very configurable. Okay, that's not really unique among WMs, but it certainly has one of the nicest control panel interfaces of the window managers."

"The level of control within the Sawfish Configurator is truly incredible. You can detail nearly every aspect about the look of your desktop--everything from theme selection to what the handle on the bottom right corner of your windows looks like."

"Starting at the macro level, Sawfish has a fair number of its own themes that are independent of any themes used by any desktop environment you've got running. These themes handle what you might expect: the construction of the windows themselves, no more, no less. But there is a lot of creative ways you can manipulate these few parameters to really give your desktop some stunning looks. Couple this with an environment's themes, and you can really make a unique statement."
