Here are three different Unix desktops. This is particularly an example of FreeBSD ... but it doesn't matter since these will run on any Unix-like system (e.g. Linux, Solaris, AIX, etc...).
KDE is among your usual Unix desktop. Gnome and XFCE are also encountered often ... perhaps more so than KDE.
This is my personal favorite. It's simple, functional and efficient. It's also a completely different way to manage window applications. This is in contrast to the usual Windows convention: start button, task bar, minimize/maximize, close.
Window Maker includes features such as:
- Shading - pull windows up and down like a window shade
- Iconify - Applications minimize to a desktop icon ... no taskbar though
- Paper clip - Organizes parent applications ... sort of like a taskbar, but not quite the same.
- Hiding - Hide applications windows in the parent application icon
- The dock - For small informative applications, like weather, etc..
It's probably similar to Apple's interface since it's loosely based on technology (NeXT Step) that is used by Apple.
Tom's (or Tab) Window Manager is mostly a historic window manager. It's not used too often anymore. Still, it has several interesting features considering it appeared well before Windows 95. Just like Window Maker, it has iconify. Killing windows and applications is quite a burden. You need to delete a window manually from the menu (much like an editor). Also, you must place newly created windows manually. Upon launching, say, Firefox, you must then decide where the Firefox window is to be placed on the desktop. Much like Window Maker, it also has a special resize button (well, Window Maker has the entire bottom frame for resizing purposes).
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed a completely different view of windowing. There are several more examples (like Gnome and XFCE previously mentioned). This is one of Unix's strongest and weakest points ... strong in that it is incredibly general, weak in that it lacks a standard and consistent interface. Actually, there isn't even a standard widget toolkit (the software that draws the buttons and so forth on a Window).
