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.


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.

Requiring a recompile to modify the config automatically denies it the status of "easy to customize". That's why I started my experiments with AwesomeWM.

...and I've already got those two particular features in AwesomeWM. They're trivial. The hard parts are adding a complete set of mouse-based interactions so I don't have to waste time going for the keyboard if my hand is already on the mouse, making menus XGrabPointer so you don't have to click within them to close them, and using a horizontally-tiled pixmap to theme titlebars so you can get subtle gradients.
