i've been using tiling wm's for a couple of months now (mostly wmii), so i'm fully adjusted to them. last week sometime, i reinstalled fluxbox, but dumped it pretty soon as i just couldn't go back to it. if you're not familiar with tiling window managment, here's a little something on it - PathToGlory
using one of these feels like real managment rather than the "did you get that thing i just tossed on your desk?" approach.
note: i realize this could boil over into a massive flame war (assuming it doesn't end up in an 'unanswered posts' search), so let's keep it civil.
