Ctwm, developed by Claude Lecommandeur, is an extension to twm, that features up to 32 multiple virtual screens, called workspaces.
You can switch from one workspace to another either by clicking on a button in an optional panel of buttons (the workspace manager) or by invoking a function. Each workspace can be customized by choosing different colours, names, and pixmaps for the buttons and root windows. It also features:
- optional 3D window titles and borders;
- windows can belong to several workspaces;
- a map of your workspaces to quickly move windows between different workspaces;
- icons, root backgrounds and buttons that can be animated;
- pinnable and sticky menus;
- optional state-aware m4 pre-processing of .ctwmrc;
- backward-compatible superset of twm;
- full, tabbed, or no titlebars, on a per window basis.
