Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That really doesn't say it all. I don't know which version of Flux or BB you're using, but every version of Flux that I've used (from stable to 0.9.9) has shown multiple apps in the toolbar. If I open an app, it shows up across the entire center of the toolbar. If I open a second app, the center section is split in two halves with each app showing up in one the two halves. If I open a third, it splits in three parts, and so on... That seems to me like it is showing more than one task at a time. Did you have something else in mind?
Maybe you should say a little more about what your current WM (whatever that may be) is or isn't doing, and what you would like it to do.
Sorry for a bad explanation. I currently use an old version of fluxbox, and when i open a task, it fills the whole bar, and when i open a second, it does not split. I shall upgrade today, maybe it fixes then.
BTW. do someone have a good tips for removing a wm installed via tar.gz? I have many wm's installed on my system that I want to remove. The question is how.
If you have built and installed the packages from source you probably used a Makefile. Most Makefiles support a "target" (a function) called uninstall, just like they often have a target called install that installs the files necessary files to their correct locations. Now guess what the uninstall target does.
In other words, simply try typing make uninstall in the source directory for the package.
If you still have the source code around, you could try make uninstall.
For the future, if you are compiling from source you should use checkinstall . It replaces the make install step and creates a Slackware package you can then manage with the usual tools. It makes uninstalling stuff a breeze.
