Abstract

This article describes WHIM, the Window Handler and Input Manager, a window management system being developed as part of the Quick Silver operating system project at IBM's Almaden Research Center. Another version of WHIM runs under AIX on the IBM PC RT. This article contrasts and compares the overlapped window scheme used in WHIM with the tiled window scheme used in other systems. The advantages of the window management scheme used in WHIM are detailed, and the effect of display interfaces on the window manager is described. © 1986 IEEE
