vtwm

The vtwm virtual window manager interface provides users at the highest level with multiple desktop screens which can be used to organize more windows than typical single screen window managers, similar to the Rooms [57] interface. It provides users an overview window, where the outlines of windows on each desktop screen are depicted. Using the overview window, users can switch the current screen to different desktops and also move the windows between different desktops. The vtwm interface also allows users to transform windows into icons, which can be placed on the desktop. The lowest level of the vtwm presentation hierarchy is the page node. Multiple pages can reside in a window, although only one of them is shown at once. Thus at the second level is the window node. At the third and fourth level are the desktop and overview nodes, respectively.
