Metisse is basically “a windowing system, based on the X Window System.” Demonstration after the jump. More information here.

It is designed with two goals in mind. First, it should make it easy for HCI researchers to design and implement innovative window management techniques Second, it should conform to existing standards and be robust and efficient enough to be used on a daily basis, making it a suitable platform for the evaluation of the proposed techniques…a tool for creating new types of desktop environments
