    Good question. Where are dwm-inspired WMs?

    This is really cool, that an application can take over a window. But what is the overhead of running each application in its own nested Wayland compositor?

    Also, launching an application by creating a new window by drawing the window size with the mouse on the screen is not how I would like to work. That is not good window management. That is not intuitive. That is not good usability.

    I'd like to see a revival of fsn.

    "It's a Wayland system! I know this!"

    This is cool. One thing that is lacking from rio from plan9port is that applications take over the executing terminal. This is finally a gimmick of Wayland that is remotely nice

    Plan 9's Rio is not a tiling WM like i3. It looks minimal but acts a little bit more similar to OpenBox.

    Plus the fact that 99% of themes for OpenBox only look good with a 1 pixel thin border (making it almost impossible to grab / resize without the alt key), makes Wio actually a more user friendly OpenBox than OpenBox

    Ooooh, shiny and old-skool. That's just up my street!!!

    Can't wait to try it out. Hopefully there'll be a package landing in 3...2...1...
