  3 Screenshots
Sawfish (previously known as Sawmill) is an open source, minimal and extensible window manager for Linux and UNIX-like operating systems, using a Lisp-based scripting language.

Sawfish’s aim is to allow users to easily manage windows in the most attractive and flexible manner possible. It features powerful key-bindings, event hooking, window matching, and flexible theming.

Even if it’s highly extensible, Sawfish does not implement application launchers, desktop backgrounds, or other similar components that are available on more powerful desktop environment as separate applications.

Sawfish is cross-platform, thus supported on Linux and BSD operating systems.
