Window Managers "Awesome is a floating and tiling window manager. 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." Version 2.3-final has been released today.

Not everybody want eye candy. Terminal command and apps are much faster than gui if you masterise them. And if you masterise them, you dont want to use GUI anymore. That all. It is a choice, most people want gui, other want tiled WM, ultra fast application command line everywhere.

As it is a fork of a suckless apps, let talk like them:
