AfterStep is a Window Manager for X which started by emulating the NEXTSTEP
look and feel, but which has been significantly altered according to the
requests of various users. Many adepts will tell you that NEXTSTEP is not
only the most visually pleasant interface, but also one of the most functional
and intuitive out there. AfterStep aims to incorporate the advantages of the
NEXTSTEP interface, and add additional useful features.
The developers of AfterStep have also worked very hard to ensure stability and
a small program footprint. Without giving up too many features, AfterStep still
works nicely in environments where memory is at a premium.
