Oroborus basically is a really minimalistic window manager, which is about 75kb small on a PowerPC machine and about 63kb on an x86 machine. "Minimalistic" means that the Oroborus window manager doesn't provide some things other window managers provide.
So you will need some external tools also provided by this project.
The main improvement with this is that you gain much flexibility.
Here are some key features of "Oroborus":
· good default key bindings
· windows are moveable by keyboard
· highly configurable
· GNOME compatible
· NET_WM compatible
· sort of KDE compatible
· and many, many more...
What's New in This Release:
· New Release.
· Add some Themes (defold, bluecurve, mkultra, Elberg_Red, Elberg_Green, Elberg_Blue)
· Fix "oroborus -V".
