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."

For a Window manager that claims to be "Awesome", it's not very awesome.

Tiled Windows == Fail.

How can you explain that i'm using a tiled window manager everyday (dwm) if tiled window manager = fail ?

Your comment failed by having no point. I don't understand why people have modded you up.

And yes, « awesome » is awesome if you compare it with dwm (compositing, many windows layout, improved status bar, configuration file [not at compile time], etc) !
