In Unix computing, AfterStep is a window manager for the X Window System. The goal of AfterStep's development is to provide for flexibility of desktop configuration, improved aesthetics and efficient use of system resources. AfterStep originally was a variant of FVWM modified to resemble NeXTSTEP, but as the development cycle progressed, it diverged from its FVWM roots.

AfterStep includes several modules such as:

*Pager - a visual tool for managing and cycling between multiple desktops

*WinList - a simple Taskbar displaying active applications

*Wharf - docking tool that manages Applets/Dockapps and launches application.

AfterStep also supports virtual screens, and relies on a set of text-based configuration files for customizing its appearance.

AfterStep is maintained by a small community of developers with Sasha Vasko serving as project manager.
