FCS, I wish you would clarify what you want:
a) a Desktop Environment
b) a Window Manager
They're not the same thing.
Typically, a DE is a (often bloated) set of software the holds your
hand, such as gnome, kde, xfce, while a WM just manages windows, such as
openbox, awm, dwm, xmonad, ion3, twm, fvwm, etc.

There are window managers written entirely in C (dwm comes to mind), but
they will still require Xorg.

Additionally, someone mentioned that you aren't much of a programmer if
you can't handle looking at another language or two....
Seriously, I'm not even a real hacker* (yet), and I can write scripts
for bash, tcl/tk, perl, and python, and am even learning a little lua
since beginning to use ion3 (no knowledge whatsoever of C, though).

Sorry if I sound rude, but this thread is annoying.


free/open source software
