Hello! i used ion for a while and it was pretty fast/easy to use. I recently tried out wmii and wmii is really nice. It's a bit less featureful (sp?) than ion, but it's smaller and easier to use. It's also very cool that its main (event) loop is a 200 line shell script. I don't know about transparency, but wmii doesn't have virtual windows (?). But it does have a very neat tagging system where each window has (a set of) tags. You can select tags to view and you will only have the windows with that tag on the screen. i like it very much! =) it's also not as strict about the tiling as ion, which is a plus as well in my opinion. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
