Perhaps a plus over ratpoison is that evil programs like the Gimp can be
run in conventional multiwindow manually (rat-)managed mode, so that one
doesn't have to switch WMs for using them.
I still think that GIMP and RP are probably a "match made in heaven"
if only we would think and talk a little more about how to get them
working together. For example, there were some interesting
suggestions about pseudo-rat-managing windows using the scroll wheel
posted on the list a while ago that were inspired by GIMP. But I
also think that Trent's patch for traversing by instance might make
the GIMP much more usable with the keyboard. Framesets also seem
like a great way to enhance usability, not even needing a patch.
Any thoughts/opinions/experiences? I think it's generally a good
thing to have more "anti-desktop" window managers around,
especially when each of them is quite good . Since the ratpoison
homepage links to Ion, it perhaps could also link to wmi?!
For now, you can edit http://ratpoison.elektrubadur.se/Window_Manglers
