Emacs is known to be a fully-customizable text-editor that can yield crazy abilities from playing games to emulating vi/vim to being an "OS inside an OS" with Emacs Lisp. The latest feature for Emacs is serving as an X Window Manager.

With EXWM, Emacs can be turned into a full-featured, tiling X window manager... Yes, really.
