Answer: mwm is a window manager.

Motif itself is made up of four parts: a User Interface Style Guide, an API
toolkit of `C' routines which helps in the building of applications which
conform to the style guide, the window manager mwm, and a language UIL which
is designed to ease user interface development.

In general mwm will run any application built with any X Window System API,
and in general an application built using the Motif toolkit will run under any
window manager.
