I have been experimenting with "exceed" window manager and "cygwin"
It is "interesting" to note that I can execute the "windowmaker"
cygwin-port and get it
To work natively with the "exceed" X-window server. The clip , the dock
, ect all
Pop-up as "icons" on my windows desktop.
Now if this capability could be further refined to work with "cygwin" in
In a manner that is complimentry/compatible/integrated and
non-disruptive with the
Normal windows desktop and/or other windows, and maybee even try to
With the "task/bar" .. Then we would have a very powerfull
Of course "unfortunately" the window-maker port is currently "broken" so
it is hard
To do further "experiments"

Subject: Rootless Mode
I have tried the server test series with "rootless" mode.
I find it very usefull. Here is my dumb opinion.
We need a Native Microsft-Cygwin "Window Manager" designed to work in
Also FYI. The "Window Maker" "port" isnt working with the most recent
"builds" Of the cygwin libraries.
