Earlier this year, in March, I switched to the bluetile tiling window, and it has been a great success.
So I was interested in seeing Vincent Bernats post about switching to Awesome, I myself intend to do that "eventually", now I've successfully dipped my toes into tiling-land, via bluetiles simple config and gnome-friendly setup.
One thing that puts me off is the length of my sessions:
skx@precious:~/hg/blog$ ps -ef | grep skx skx 2237 1 0 Mar12 ? 00:00:01 /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon ...
As you can see I've been logged into my desktop session for four months. I lock the screen when I wander away, but generally login once when the computer boots and never again for half a year or so. FWIW:
skx@precious:~/hg/blog$ uptime 23:01:19 up 138 days, 4:44, 4 users, load average: 0.02, 0.06, 0.02
