Wimpiggy is a library for writing EWMH-compliant, compositing window managers using Python and GTK+. The goal is to make writing a window manager as easy as writing a PyGTK application. This library can be used to build a trivial, working window manager in only about 40 lines of code.
Musca is a simple window manager for X allowing both tiling and stacking modes. It is similar to ratpoison but more friendly to the mouse and using a simpler keyboard navigation. There are no built in status bars, panels, or window decorations save for thin window borders to indicate focus. Window navigation can be mouse click to focus or entirely keyboard driven. Window tiling is manual but simple, and there are no restrictions on how you divide up the screen. It uses dwm's dmenu utility for launching apps and running various built in commands not mapped to hot keys.
The JScrollDesktopPane Swing component for Java provides a virtual desktop replete with dynamic scroll bars, dynamic menus, and dynamic button shortcuts. The JScrollDesktopPane class surmounts the limitations of the original JDesktopPane Swing component, offering a solution to the clipping and overlap problems inherit to said component, and mimics the interface of the original JDesktopPane to provide an easy upgrade path. It provides a scrolling MDI desktop, one of the most requested features to the Java JDK.
Lobotomy involves many sub-projects oriented to experimentation about new design for human-computer interaction and, more generally, a new way for home computing. It involves a relational filesystem, a window manager, and many libraries, tools, and daemons to automatically extract and handle metadata.
Perl OS is a program that provides an easy interface to run Perl/Tk programs. It was also created to be an easy working environment, complete with a text editor, paint program, and more. It comes with several programs, along with a utility to add many more which can be found on the Internet. From the outside, Perl OS looks like a simple operating system. But inside, it is a powerful system for working with Perl and Tk.
