Window Manager of the Year


If you are looking for KDE, Gnome, MATE, Unity, etc they are in the Desktop Environment Award.

NOTE: Window Managers that are rarely used outside of their Desktop Environment counterparts were removed last year, based on feedback. This includes: Compiz, KWin, Marco, Muffin, Mutter and xfwm4.
NOTE: Enlightenment was moved to the Desktop Environment category last year.

Xfce

My vote is for Xfce. Why is there no selection for Xfce?

Xfce isn't a window manager, it's a desktop environment.

Openbox and Fluxbox are the solid choices, but JWM beats them in lightness from what I have seen.
