Artist's Note

I've recently taken an interest in tiling window managers. I'm still stuck on Windows for various reasons so I thought I would try to implement a Semi-Tiled setup in XP.

I tried numerous tiling window managers for XP. None of them met my needs 100%. The best one i found was a program written by [link] called HashTWM.

I hacked the source code to meet my needs making it so it essentially just strips the frame off of windows i tell it to. The automated window arrangement is then handled by bblean.

Here's a run down of some of the components I'm using in this shot:


* Colinux (thanks for the inspiration [link])
* Archlinux
* AwesomeWM
* gvim
* zsh (thanks [link])
* Xing
* Putty


* E Text Editor
* IRSSI ([link])
* bblean
* bblan skin Mod of celadore by cosmo-krusty
* Wallpaper is Flora Nine by ~Delta909
* Launcher is Executor
* Shutdown is gehrunnerjunge
* BBInterface
* BB WinTyler
* I use samurize for the HUD and to glue it all together

This is still a WIP, the font situation is bad, i can't see any way of doing this setup without using at least 3-4 different fonts do to windows/bblean's handling of fixed width fonts and linux's handling of ttf fonts...
