Window Managers Awesome 2.2 has been released. "Awesome is a floating and tiling window manager initialy based on a dwm code rewriting. It's extremely fast, small, dynamic and awesome. Windows can be managed in several layouts: tiled, maximized, dwindle, spiral, floating... Each layout can be applied on the fly, optimizing the environment for the application in use and the task performed. Managing windows in tiled mode assures that no space will be wasted on your screen. No gaps, no overlap. Other layouts can be used for different purpose. If you do not want to use the tiling management, you can use the floating layout wich will let you organize your windows as you wish, like any other window manager."

tiling Wms

After seeing this article, I decided to experiment with some tiling Wms on my laptop. I have to admit the concept is really cool.

I hate trackpads, and so a tiling WM suits my needs perfectly while i'm on the go. I have settled on using wmii because I find it to be easy to use and it comes configured pretty nicely out of the box.

Its great to see lots of new tiling Wms, but my only complaint is the lack of documentation. I have had difficulty finding support for wmii, and awesome, xmonad, and dwm have pretty sparse documentation and user support.
