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."

Installing on Ubuntu

I installed Awesome on Ubuntu 7.10 by downloading the .deb from debian.org SID area. I had to upgrade libc6 but I think that was it. The biggest complaint I have about Ubuntu is with compiling programs. I prefer Slackware because I can compile pretty much everything and most libraries are installed.
