  Window Managers for X: Introduction
There have been numerous versions of the X Window System, but it was not until the eleventh version, known simply as "X11", that it was widely released and began to gain the popularity it enjoys today.
Fortunately X doesn't suffer from this degree of rigidity, and to this end, a large number of window managers have been developed, which between them provide a large range of different appearances and different behaviours.
This means that a newcomer to X has firstly a choice of window manager, and then a choice of the precise configuration of the chosen window manager.

 X window manager - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Unlike the Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows platforms, which have historically provided a vendor-controlled, fixed set of ways to control how windows and panes display on a screen, and how the user may interact with them, window management for the X Window System was deliberately kept separate from the software providing the graphical display.
When a window manager is running, some kinds of interaction between the X server and its clients are redirected through the window manager.
A tiling window manager is a window manager with an organization of the screen into mutually non-overlapping frames (hence the name tiling), as opposed to the traditional approach of coordinate-based stacking of objects (windows) that tries to emulate the desk paradigm.

 Enlightenment (window manager) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Enlightenment, also known simply as E, is an open source window manager for the X Window System which can be used alone or in conjunction with a desktop environment such as GNOME or KDE.
As such, Enlightenment is sometimes deployed as a substitute for a full desktop environment.
The first version of Enlightenment was released by Raster (Carsten Haitzler) on October 30, 1996.

While we are best known for the Enlightenment Window Manager itself there is a long history of providing advanced libraries and tools to support the window manager and other applications, such as Imlib, FNLib, and Imlib2, which extend far beyond the window manager itself in scope.
Version 0.16 of the Enlightenment window manager was released in 2000, along with its dependencies Imlib and Fnlib, and remains in heavy usage today.
Nearly all functions of the window manager can be handled without mouse input, including application launching via e16keyedit.

 Window Managers for X: Enlightenment
Enlightenment (known to some as "E") was originally based on fvwm2, but it has since been completely rewritten - apparently sharing no code with any other window manager.
This window manager makes heavy use of the Shape extension and pixmaps, although because of its complete rewrite it is now fairly usable on lower end systems.
See the page for more details, and the latest update on Enlightenment's status.
