New fresh install of the latest RC of Slackware 13.37, really impressed so far with it.
Seeing as i dont like the look of Unity or gnome 3 or gnome shell, KDE is looking more like a DE choice for me now.
KDE seems to be super-light on Slackware compared to any other distro, so it could be Slackware + KDE from now on

Not sure about the blue bar - I think it needs to be a little darker.

GazL, any patches to your dwm besides the colour? I'm trying to figure out whether dwm is better for me than i3. So far, I prefer the config files of i3, but there's something to dwm...

@brixton, Still early days for me and dwm:

Funnily enough I also came to dwm after trying I3 (and a few of the other tiling window managers). Despite the pain in the arse of having to hack the code to configure it I much prefer dwm to I3.

At the moment I only have the focusonclick and autoresize patches applied, but I'll be looking to add a few more soon: 'moveresize' , 'statuscolors' and "bottom stack" and/or 'gapless grid' all look worth investigating.
.
I tried some of the other patches like the nmaster and movestack ('push' does the same job and IMO is cleaner code) but I thought all these were starting to make it a little too involved to use, so I put them to one side while I get to grips with it properly. I tend to use a combination of floating mode and monocle mode, so all the fancy tiling layouts don't really interest me. I did like the aesthetics of the 'uselessgap' patch when in tiling mode, but I didn't like the way it's implemented in the code so I'll be looking to hack that feature directly into the tile mode's arrange function rather than have it modify the window positions in the way that it currently does.

Oh, I'm also trying to figure out some optimum keyboard shortcuts for it because many of the default ones seem to clash with ones in the applications I use. Making use of the 'Windows key' for some of them seems a sensible choice.

Thankfully dwm's code is very hackable and I've got one or two other idea on improvements I'd like to make should I decide to stick with it.

Out of curiosity, what did you like more? My impression is that dwm looks nicer. I just didn't get around to spending time recompiling it enough to get the settings right for me. I also feel that dwm's window tagging is more powerful than i3's but that I didn't use it enough.

Replacing Alt with Win was the fist thing I did with both i3 and dwm.

And there's only 2000 lines of it... Amazing!

Let us know how it goes. You are getting me interested in it again...
