Window Maker Live – an installable Linux live CD/ISO, and is based Debian GNU/Linux.

While its main purpose is to provide a show case for the Window Maker window manager, which serves as its default graphical user interface and therefore has received special preconfiguration care, it can also be considered as an alternative installation CD for Debian/Wheezy. As such, wmlive is fully compatible with and relies on the official Debian/Wheezy repositories for security updates and bug fixes.

The live system contains some pre-installed applications such as: Pidgin instant messenger, Firefox web browser, Thunderbird email and news client, Seahorse password manager, Mousepad text editor, FileZilla file transfer client, Thunar file manager, Geeqie image viewer, Rhythmbox music player and SMPlayer video player.

The system is under active development since June 2011.
Until February 2012, it was based on Ubuntu, and after that has been moved to Debian (Live Build).
