What's the objectively best WM/DE?


Gnome 3



Gnome 2





This is a pretty cancerous question,OP, but if you meant my favorite WM, I would have to say Openbox.


I really like bspwm




I'm enjoying Mate. I wish KDE had a less memory intensive spin. Guess I'll be giving i3 a try next.


there is no objective best because they all have different pros and cons

i'm a fan of i3-gaps however


i like i3


lxde or xfce with whisker menu


I recently installed trisquel, and I've been using LXDE with awesome instead of openbox.


I'm currently using i3.

Considering switching to xfce+awesome though. How hard is it to use awesome without knowing lua?


I like awesome.



Awesome comes with a default configuration (and an ugly background).

It's a great way to learn LUA.





you have to pass the test on their website before they send you the sourcecode via snailmail in a font that is hard to digitalize

just type everything down and then you can do whatever the fuck you want



loonix newfag.

What's the benefit of having to use lua? It seems like a downside. Is lua really good at a specific type of processing?



I second OpneBox. It is pretty great, even if config is in XML.


i3wm or the i3-gaps fork: https://github.com/Airblader/i3



Fluxbox is lightning fast and (after a small learning curve) can be themed to look like it's not from 1983.



It's the fastest and one of the most simple to use scripting languages.

Having a full scripting language at your disposal allows you to modify the ui programatically and basically write your own widgets/keybindings/interactions painlessly.

Awesome is easy to configure even if you don't know lua, but if you do, you can make it do just about anything; not that what i said is mostly valid for any good twm.





It's pretty much openbox, except it has a built in panel instead of a built in XML parser so you don't have to worry about finding one if all you want is a window list.

It also has tabs. Tabs man, tabs.


Pretty hard because automatic tiling is pretty shit
















openbox if you want something minimal but also like to have some personalization.

fluxbox if you like openbox/lightweight and need everything to work out of box! bonus points for easy customizations and tons of themes so it doesn't look like crap.

Mate if you need something closer to the Windows (pre-8) environment. Plus it doesn't look half bad. No personalization needed.

XFCE if you want what mate has to offer but a little lighter and nearly any theme you could desire or build. It just works.

i3 or awesomewm if you like tiles and hate your mouse (or just want a pure text-based, full keyboard) *work environment..

KDE if your computer has power and you want tons of features and like Windows Vista.

Anything else is really what you want and how much. That's the beautiful way of gnu/Linux!


i3 or awesome.

XFCE or Cinnamon.


bspwm is the shit. tiling goodness with more control and good looks than i3



Both are worth a try. I find i3 defaults to be more comfortable to my needs. Awesome is something I like to tweak rather than use it OOB.

XCFE is a nice stable DE for minimal fuss. Cinnamon has and probably always will be garbage. It's clunky, ugly, unstable, breaks all the time, horrible themes. Unless you snow me how 'beautiful' you can make cinnamon, I'm not touching it.



Do you recommend that over 2bwm or herbstluftwm?




I also like OpenBox the most. Just a WM, some menus, Alt-Tab, and dmenu. No panels needed: I just hover an xclock off to the corner.


I'm pretty comfy in 2bwm, but dwm is maybe the most versatile and well known for its quality.


tags > workspaces.



Pick your favorite tiling window manager. I like i3, mostly just because I've used it so long and know it well.



Can bspwm create tabbed containers? If so, I'll switch.

Openbox looking like twm


i3 is rad but i don't like panels. That's why i go with ratpoison.

And check out linuxbbq cream for experimenting





I like spectrwm a lot



my boy

I'm using dwm with the Plan9/rio style swallow patch. I need to find some time to rice my cmus and setup a better color scheme for various things, but I'm starting to get comfy.



>they all have different pros and cons

t. autism

There are wms that are worse than other wms.



>not window maker

I kinda like Lxde or just plain openbox.

I found that tmux takes care of 99% of my tiling needs


completly custom bspwm thst doesn't use any sxhkd or bspwm examples



>on /rice/

>uses best ricing wm





this. i'm currently using i3



kde set up to look like xp


I prefer openbox or ratpoison, stumpwm is ok. The less GUI the better, getting rid of window borders is a big deal for helping me focus, I also use surf so I don’t have tabs in the way. Conky is nice for displaying the time but that’s really it.


Xmonad is one rarely suggested, but in my opinion is very useful



I like how that is the biggest complain about openbox.




>It's lightweight, no bloat

>It just werks



fvwm, xmonad



WM/DEs are bloat. Use tmux on tty.



Beatiful. I don't know shit about ricing, just like to appreciate them, but I really liked this one. I wan't to know how can you use this green window theme, together whit the classic Win98 theme(I don't know how to use openbox, in case if its default.).




Oh, I see. So that is the default from twm. Thanks anyway, anon, also, nice rice.
