The i3 Window Manager

31 Jan

Part three of a series.

i3 is a tiling window manager. That's how it advertises itself, but dynamic and floating both apply, too.

On a minimal system like mine, the windowmanager is most of the working environment. To determine how well it supports my workflow and integrates with my other utilities, I have to use it for a while. Longer than planned, I simply never got around to testing the next windowmanager or even going back to my old favorite openbox. Which is a good sign - i3 is usable.
