Linux Lennart Poettering, the author of systemd, has announced: "I just put a first version of a wiki document together that lists a couple of easy optimizations to get your boot times down to [less than] 2s. It also includes a list of suggested things to hack on to get even quicker boot-ups."

Not sure what you meant by"drag handles", but if you you want varying sized tiles, than you're probably looking for a dynamic tiler.

Bluetile can be configured to let you resize your tiles by grabbing the border between two windows and dragging. (Like the splitter widgets used to implement things like file manager sidebars)

What specifically do you mean by "dynamic tiler"? I've never heard the term before.

You've basically highlighted the main problem with tilers. They need to fit you like a second skin, or they're bollocks. Probably why you see a lot of people WM hopping until they find one that works for them.

Not necessarily. I'd settle for something that implements enough of the de facto standard interactions from floating WMs that I could ease myself into it. (Again, something Bluetile scores well on. dwm-derived WMs like AwesomeWM seem to revel in making sure as few keybindings are shared with floating WMs as possible.)
