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.

Awesome is really, er, awesome. It's one of the few tiling wm's that has really good xrandr support. My only complaint is that so far, they seem to change the layout and options of the configuration file with each release, which makes updating a config file to a new version kind of a PITA.

Other than that, this is a great wm.
