    Window manager history


    I remember a while ago I came across a picture that showed the history of window managers; it showed which window manager inspired another. Does anyone know of where I could find this again? I thought it was really cool.

    Thanks!

    I don't recall that, I saw a similar picture but with various UNIXes. Wikipedia has a great site on WM's:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_manager
    ... and I really liked this when I read it, check it out:

    I usually go to http://xwinman.org/ when I want any info about Linux window managers. I don't recall them having a picture of window manager history, though.
