I just downloaded and installed Cygwin. The default
window  manager : twm doesn't provide many
functionality and it's hard to use. I don't even know
how to change the windows size. (i'm a newbie). I
found that there is wmaker.exe in X11R6/bin. So I
replaced that with "twm &" in the file.
But when I tried to run it. WindowMaker couldn't
start, crashed all the time.

So how do I use windowmaker instead of twm? (or does
cygwin come with any other better window manager?)
