    Default WIndow Managers Poll

    We are all familiar with the the major DE's but it seems the window managers just don't get enough credit, not the kind they deserve.


    * So what Window Manager do you like, use and why?
    * What could make those Window Managers better?
    * Or what has made them worse?
    Once you install a modem, the government can look into your computer and watch everything you do! That's why every night before I go to bed, I turn the monitor to the wall.

    I haven't used the others in awhile so I just chose IceWM. I have always liked it and I am currently using it when I play some 3D games.

    I am going to have to consult with you before I do these polls, lol

    Actually I added 10 and I wanted to put more on but it wouldn't let me once I got to the poll part. So I deleted one and added "Other" for an option.

    Thanks microchip8 for the view under the hood.

    I now voted others, because it seems that suse_amd64x2 skipped the most important one, others is now at 75%.

    I would have added Kwin but unlike the other WM's Kwin did not send lobbyists, did not give me special present and promises of a lot of money!!!

    Actually I forgot that one. I was going by memory and well lets just say it has its good days and its bad days, lol.

    It is proven again and again, not only here, that making good polls is much, much more difficult then working with computers

    And as statistics are often based on polls ..., well you know what they say about statistics
