I was lucky enough to actually have a chance to use wm at Carnegie Mellon before it was fully retired in favor of X11 on the systems in public clusters; it made a monochrome DECstation 3100 with 8MB much more livable.

When it was retired, it was still usable for a while because the CMU Computer Club maintained an enhanced version (wmc) that everyone had access to, and Club members got access to its sources.

Did anyone happen to preserve the wm or wmc codebase? There's some documentation in the papers that were published about the wm and Andrew API but no code.
