Y/N Y/N Y/N Y/N Y/N *Changing key bindings by editing the source and recompiling counts as a "No."
**I'll try to include the memory usage of any expected secondary apps such as clocks, pagers, and biffs.
Other stuff I'll try to report on if I can find the answers easily (and these things are here because it usually isn't) are:
- unusual dependencies (define "unusual" ...)
- language it's written in (if it supports scripting in another language, list that too)
- icons on desktop?
- mouse clicks on desktop do what?
- desktop menu?
- NETWM, ICCCM, EWMH, Motif, GNOME compliance (text)
- window iconization/minimization?
- vi or emacs (keys similarities)?
- tabs and/or grouping?
- icon bar? (usually but not always part of taskbar)
- window lists?
- Distros? - as in "this WM is distributed with ..."
- How good is the documentation?
- Window Decorations
- Are there any? Can the windows be shaped?
- Is it themeable? How much so?
My opinions of and experiences with the WM. What's good and bad about it. If you're curious about the name I chose for this imaginary Window Manager, it comes from my favourite secondary character ever, Batô in "Ghost in the Shell" (and yes, I know he has the lead in the sequel).
