Dynamic window managers support both tiling and floating window layout. There are quite a few of them, e.g. awesome, dwm, catwm, xmonad and probably many more. A lot of them claim to be stable, fast and with a small footprint. They seem to be aimed at powerusers and require a but of configuration work to get them working to your liking. But what are the important differences between them? How would I go about choosing one, given that the time required to learn each of them prevents me from giving them a fair test?
