BadWM is a minimalistic window manager for the X Window System. It features no window decorations except for a simple 1 pixel border, no icons, no menu, good keyboard control (including repositioning and vertical/horizontal/full maximization), is configurable through a config file, virtual desktops, small binary size, high usability, intelligent window placement, intellegent window resizing, snap to edge, snap to border, and multi-head support.
