Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ I bought my Celeron box for $30 at a used computer store here, and I've seen them for almost as little on Craigslist. 40G IDE hard drive are $5 at the FreeGeek store here.  think you said were in school in Corvallis? I'm in the Portland area so you should be able to find similar deals there. Of course, if you're a starving college student... hmm

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Always knew 2Many was going to be famous in the #! forum and gnu/Linux crowd. Never doubted it for a sec. smile


This latest one looks interesting too, dang it ! Am starting to get a bit worried that before this WM review proj is over, am going to end up with half a dozen window manangers installed ... yikes. tongue The brief summary of things you/2Many discover, which config files are most important and changes you felt needed to make em more useable help though. Hmmmm ... starting to look like it's TWM tryout time too ... sighs.


vll ! wink

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ Don't be sad about working, imo time on hands is good, too much time on handz is awful. Trying to get a bizness started meself here. Screwing with all the FOSS and opensource of the world is a virtual n perpetual bottomless pit of distraction and time dump anyway. Guessing somebody could spend a lifetime messing with it all and quietly die with very lil productive having actually been accomplished.


They'll have some kickbutt, uber tweaked gnu/nix software though. tongue


This one ... (TWM) looks different, could take some time getting used to. But don't doubt it has potential to work well for whoever wants to set it up their way. Haven't really had the time to mess with it yet, like that it's one tiny package to install and always prefer these wm's who are "well behaved" as 2Many describes and get along well with gdm/etc. Figuring out what to add to xsessions, let alone actually having to compile a wm, imo PITA ... Mark me down as entirely too lazy to go through all that. Choose to stick to the 429 other wm's out there, who behave in a more civilized manner. big_smile


Dang it 2Many am already up to 3 wm's installed ! Arghhhhhh ... iz kinda fun tho. Vll ! wink

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Interesting proj you've got going 2Many, decided TWM is too much work for me atm. Going back to two and will be lurking this topic, waiting to see which others you tryout and ones ya wind up really liking. Am sure others in your wm adventures will wind up getting installed and tried here too. wink


Vll !

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ thanks for the support CB; I know there are a lot of lurkers out there reading but not responding (at least I hope there are smile ) -- you might like evilwm tomorrow, or might not -- it' minimal but very configurable, right up my street -- I love it so far.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^^ thanks slob-san; -- that's the scrot that turned me on to twm in the first place, but I was too lazy/busy to find it. Any of these WMs can be awesome if you spend some time getting know them... And that's what I mean -- I'm no artist, but I've seen some beautiful scrots. I just hope I can get people to branch out a little -- and move out of their comfort zone; it's so easy to install and play with these WMs; I'm addicted...

Hope you like evilwm tomorrow -- I love it today...

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ thanks h8. that's all I can hope for. And what does "relevant" even mean in a world that runs WMs written in 1987? Like I said in  a previous post: "there's a butt for every seat" -- and as CB alwasy says "VLL"!

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ rhofur: it's all in the eye of the beholder. I think the default debian fluxbox theme is ugly; CB likes it. It's awesome that we have these options, and that's what I'm trying to celebrate for the next 24 days (OMG, who signed me up for this?) ... I might need more of the lurkers to at least tell me they're lurking (100 replies responses, 2507 views? WTF?)
