This manual page documents briefly mutter. mutter is a minimal X window manager aimed at nontechnical users and is designed to integrate well with the GNOME desktop. mutter lacks some features that may be expected by traditional UNIX or other technical users; these users may want to investigate other available window managers for use with GNOME or standalone.
