Innovative X-based window system
Metisse is an experimental X desktop with neat OpenGL features. It consists of a virtual X server called Xmetisse, a special version of FVWM, and a FVWM module FvwmCompositor.
Metisse was designed with two goals in mind. First, it should make it easy for HCI researchers to design and implement innovative window management techniques. Second, it should conform to existing standards and be robust and efficient enough to be used on a daily basis, making a suitable platform for the evaluation of the proposed techniques.
