DevTerm window manager

Hi,

I was trying to identify the window manager from the pictures on you web site, and failed.

Can you tell me what it is please ?

You might not have much luck, I’m afraid. The devs don’t really frequent the forums, so we’re gonna have to wait till the devices get into people’s hands or they upload the new Clockwork OS version to GitHub.

i believe it’s either TWM or DWM

@guu was one of the devs I believe.
Here is something mentioning historically the choices and reasoning for using each; and ultimately why it’s most likely going to be dwm.
Now that we have a stable GPU driver, I have personally disabled twm on my own custom images, and have made dwm the default in both handheld and hdmi mode; at least on my gameshell.
Since performance issues shouldn’t be a thing on the devterm, I don’t see why they would use twm.

That said, this was uploaded 16 hours ago, ie twm content. Perhaps it is going to use twm.

yeah, my TWM guess is based on the gameshell history, but with the devterm i can imagine it being DWM by default with a wider range of window manager options like i3, awesome, openbox etc.
