Favorite Wm?

Recommended Posts

I like both GNOME and KDE; GNOME because 2.8 is very nice, and KDE because of all the eye-candy.

In terms of just window managers, *box and WindowMaker are my two favorites.

Agreed. I love the eye candy in KDE. For a super fast WM I like Black Box..........but it isn't pretty. I guess KDE is it for me.

Ion is sort of nice to. Simple, but very effective.

Hi TheLetterK,

Cool. What is lon? I haven't heard of that WM.

It's a WM that uses tiling instead of overlapping windows.

Linky

Cool. Very minimalistic like Black Box or Enlightenment. It looks like it would be very fast and light on system resources. Thanks for the linky :D

About 3 megs of system memory, very lightweight.

Sweet!

That's even faster than Black Box :D Very cool!

I've been using it for the last few hours, 'cool' is an understatement. Seems a bit silly really, but it's -very- functional. Something most other window managers seem to be lacking. Even seems to provide something like the OS X shade-panel effect for dialog boxes. Dialog boxes spawn from the edge of the tile with no border.
