Athene is a desktop system for Linux that uses its own graphics drivers for high speed access to your graphics card. Because the Athene desktop and its applications have direct access to the graphics hardware, they have a significant speed advantage over conventional X applications. Athene is also backwards compatible with your existing X11 software. It features a highly responsive interface, scalable icons, translucency, alpha blending, Unicode support, and Windows compatibility.

WindowLab is a small and simple window manager of novel design. It has a click-to-focus but not raise-on-focus policy, a window resizing mechanism that allows one or many edges of a window to be changed in one action, and an innovative menubar that shares the same part of the screen as the taskbar. Window titlebars are prevented from going off the edge of the screen by constraining the mouse pointer. When appropriate, the pointer is also constrained to the taskbar/menubar in order to make target menu items easier to hit.
wumwum is a window manager manager. The idea behind wumwum is to turn any EWMH-compliant window manager into a tiling manager a la "ion" or "awesome". wumwum works by using wmctrl, and adapts itself dynamically to the active window manager. All functionality from the underlying window manager is kept when under wumwum, making it ideal for beginners.
