The Tab Window Manager is so stripped down and minimal, there really isn't a whole lot more that it will do than console. I'd use KDE/Gnome/Enlightenment etc if you want something more advanced. I'm sure you knew of those though...

does anyone seriously use twm? I have to use it in a vlsi lab i have, and it's utterly disgusting. Surely some sort of WM standard should be put down, and twm be left firmly outside of it! if you want something simple use blackbox or fvwm... i really do resent havign to choose where to put each window every time i use it...
