The aewm window manager is awkward to use because there is no facility to maximize windows, and it is necessary for the desktop to be visible in order to launch programs and to show hidden tasks. Additionally useless borders are used, so windows cannot be resized by dragging their edges. It is also necessary to drag the the titlebar with a middle click in order to move windows. Dragging with a left click will not work.

The aewm window manager is not accessibility friendly because it does not provide keyboard equivalents for its operations and is not touchscreen friendly because it requires a multibutton mouse.
