    What if I first tile 2-3 windows on my screen, then make a tab of only one of the windows on my screen?
    Does the Phoronix community consider my use-case to be pure tiling window management or am I a fraud too? (sarcasm if not obvious)

      Sad to see that the tray support for d-bus menu icons is still not merged.
      Quite annoying that I can't interact with some of my tray icons without this fix.

        What more do people want?
        But not for long. Soon Phoronix commenters will take over and remove everything floating

          Does anybody know of a way to configure Sway so that it defaults to opening new windows in "floating" mode instead of tiling? I can't stand tiling.
          Hikari looks like a better alternative for a minimal stacking compositor.

I was hoping for windows that would have a slight resistance to being moved beyond the edges of the viewable screen area, but no such luck. Windows that have a slight resistance when moving them up against other window's edges would be nice too.
            In my wayfire, if you drag a window to the left, or right, top, or bottom, at the point the cursor reaches the edge the compositor will show a representation of a half screen maximized window, and if you release the mouse, it will snap the window to that. Then if you drag the window from that maximized state, it will return to its former size. Also, there are key-bindings that for example I can hold super and hit keypad numbers to zap the window to the four quadrants + left, right top, bottom maximized, and full screen. There seems to be a lot of configurability there, though I have not delved too deeply into it yet...

              Tabbed mode is not a thing that's separate from tiling. Tabs are simply sub-workspaces, nothing more. Within each tab, tiling also occurs, even if you only have one app displaying there.

                For KDE there's really nice https://github.com/kwin-scripts/kwin-tiling
