• Default window manager switched to CTWM in NetBSD-current

    From OSnews@21:1/5 to All on Mon Sep 28 20:43:35 2020
    For more than 20 years, NetBSD has shipped X11 with the "classic" default window manager of twm. However, it';s been showing its age for a long time now.
    In 2015, ctwm was imported, but after that no progress was made. ctwm is a fork of twm with some extra features - the primary advantages are that it';s still incredibly lightweight, but highly configurable, and has support for virtual desktops, as well
    as a NetBSD-compatible license and ongoing development. Thanks to its configuration options, we can provide a default experience that';s much more usable to people experienced with other operating systems.

    The ctwm website has more information for those interested.
