So, I'm by no means a Linux novice, and I've used a lot of minimalistic and lightweight software (read: the stuff arch linux users use, then laugh at you for not using). One thing I've never tried is a tiling window manager. I've done a fair amount of research on them, but they all have a lot of features that are not immediately apparent from their introductory documentation. So, I'm asking you to recommend me one, and explain why you think it's a good choice.
- Lightweight in memory use and dependencies (so no awesome or xmonad, sorry)
- Does not require me to configure it in an obscure language (such as haskell, lua, common lisp, etc.)
- Cooperates with programs that need to float (such as gimp, openoffice, etc)
- Integrates nicely with or provides substitutes for things like dzen and dmenu
- Is not so elitist that documentation is cryptic or incomplete
- Xinerama support would be nice (but probably still not using xmonad)
So far, I think my best options are dwm, wmii, and scrotwm. So, please help me pick between the three, or, if there's another one you just love, tell me what it is, and why I should love it too.
