Metacity is a window manager for GNOME, with a focus on simplicity and usability rather than novelties or gimmicks.

It uses GTK+ 2 for drawing window frames, meaning that it inherits colours, fonts, and so on from the GTK+ theme. Its author has characterized it as a "boring window manager for the adult in you. Many window managers are like Marshmallow Froot Loops; Metacity is like Cheerios."
