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."

Dynamic basic means manual in my simpleton-lingo. Sorry for the confusion.

Hmm,
I personally prefer the Master-Stack model found Dwm/Xmonad/SpectrWM, but maybe you might like something like WMFS2.

ArchWiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/WMFS2

Supposed to offer the best of both tiling and stacking worlds, at least according to the people that talk about it (and the screenshots).

Very little experience with Awesome and no experience with Bluetile, so I can't help you there. Awesome can probably do what you're asking as well.

Thanks. I'll take a look at it once I have a moment to spare.

I like the concept of the master-stack model but the way I tend to use my stuff precludes using it exclusively. (It also doesn't help that I've got a pair of 1280x1024 monitors, which is too narrow for master-stack with many of my apps)

If I could find a Window manager that was lightweight and themable like Openbox but easier to extend, I'd probably start experimenting with implementing a hybrid of floating, tiling, and tabbing that does what I want.

As is, I just have to try to think of ways to work around the existing Window manager to implement as much as possible of what I want without killing off the mature floating implementation.

actually I think dwm has the features you want. Mod+j will move the master/stack split right (I think, and k does left, idk it's not a combo I know well, I tend to have to fiddle a bit to find the right combo.) theming is a hex color edit and recompile away. And different tabs (or programs) can be set to float or tile by default.

Ha, that's funny. I always use 'static' vs 'dynamic' to mean whether the WM ever resizes windows unless I specifically ask it to - so I'd consider manual tiling 'static' and basically anything else 'dynamic'.

(there's not a lot of tiling wm's that are 'static' in this sense - I ended up maintaining one that does as I didn't find any others I could get used to. Shameless plug: check out http://notion.sf.net if interested)
