So, I’m interested in trying out a tiling window manager, but there are a lot of them, and I don’t really know their strengths. Which one is your favorite, and why?
I’m interested to hear from anyone that uses/has used a tiling window manager.
Please do not go off topic.
It’d also be nice if you could post a screenshot or something.
there is a nice list of them.
only one i’ve used is ion.it’s alright, but i really can’t use my desktop like that. i always end up having couple of too small windows, or wasted space. works best only with console screens, but for that only, there is already quadkonsole.
WMII, because it is feature full and lightweight. All the settings are accessible via a virtual file system, so it can be customize with what ever scripting/programing language you like best. If you plan on trying it be sure to use a hg pull as there has been bug fixes for using blender.
You can find more screenshots on the Archlinux forum where tiling window managers are quite popular.
