    Never heard of anyone using that. If I want tiling I use a tiling WM.

      Indeed.

      I'm using 'awesome WM' for quite some time; and it really is.

        And what if one wants tiling, compositing, and tabbing? I'm not aware of another WM that does it all.

          And now Kwin doesn't do that either

            Don't worry abandoned KDE users, Gnome's Mutter, via an extension, does tiling.
            Come to Gnome, we have tiling!

              Why did I think of the "free candy van" when I read that

                "Developers plan to provide window tiling support for the KDE desktop through a KWin script"

                    Most people who just surf the web, this is not an issue. For people who do actually work, with several windows and workspaces, this might be a problem.

                      One could also stay on the KDE side and just use mutter instead of kwin to get KDE stuff and tiling :-P

                        yeah but then you'd have to use KDE.
                        I was trying to save some people from the horror since there's already enough suffering in the world

                            alt-tab

                            I use alt-tab to navigate windows. If you hit it and then release tab while holding alt, you can then click through the icons one a time by hitting tab, or move in reverse holding alt and doing a shift tab. It's a fairly easy find for the hand if you touch type using the thumb and middle finger. Worked better in Gnome from my experience then with KDE, but works either way. Can be set up to list in order used or order open. I use it in order used so the current window is the first icon and you can bounce between current and last or recent tabs pretty easily.

                            Thanks all.

                            Be real, be sober.

                              I hope the "script" they mention works...
