Graphics, User Interfaces This week in Arch Linux's news letter there was an interview with Ion's creator Tuomo Valkonen. Ion is a complete desktop environment built on the tiling windowmanager PWM. It uses Lua as an embedded interpreter which handles all of the configuration. It mainly uses the keyboard to access the functions but also supports the mouse for some things.

I've been a Mac user since 1987, but last year I switched to Gentoo and then Ubuntu after getting tired of Apple's bullshit. I recently started using ion2 as my GNOME window manager instead of metacity. It is so refreshing to not have to deal with overlapping windows and all the wasted time and frustration they cause. My only complaint is that I wish ion used python instead of lua.
