No they are not the same, but similar in roots.
It is quite possible you received a WindowMaker ( not WondowManager,
sorry if i wrote that incorrectly) recommendation from me as I am a big
fan of it and often suggest people use it.
And as I may have mentioned they release a new version within the last
month, I personally haven't been able to get it to work, has anybody
else? ( I believe it is 0.80.0)
Sorry about the funky date, but somehow I crashed my G4 Powerbook (I
think OpenOffice might have been the culprit) and had to use the reset
button and for whatever reason it likes to mess with my clock and always
puts me pack to that date and time.
And sorry about the long reply time everyone.
