Yes, I can spell, the title’s a pun… an awful, awful pun. But you’ll get it shortly.
Anyway! Following on from my previous post, this entry will be primarily focused on the reason/use of tiling window managers.
So, first, let’s talk about what a window manager is.
A window manager is a piece of software that… well, manages your windows! No I’m not talking about the operating system by Microsoft, I’m talking about the ‘containers’ that hold the applications on your screen, otherwise referred to as ‘clients’. If you’re reading this, you’re using a window manager, it’s the thing ‘holding’ the web browser (unless you’re using something like lynx from a UNIX tty or something, in which case; what the hell are you doing using it to read my blog?) I think I’m getting a bit off topic here…
