The Metacity Window Manager Metacity 2001-05-30 A simple GTK+ window manager that tries not to get in your way. A window manager for GNOME, with a focus on simplicity and usability rather than novelties or gimmicks. It uses GTK+ 2 for drawing window frames, so that it inherits colours, fonts, and so on from the GTK+ theme. Its author has characterised it as a "boring window manager for the adult in you. Many window managers are like Marshmallow Froot Loops; Metacity is like Cheerios." window-manager C Havoc Pennington Elijah Newren Thomas Thurman
