I’m starting to feel more at home in i3 Window Manager and using the mouse almost exclusively for web surfing with the occasional adjustment to tile widths and floating window placement.
I still refer to the i3 reference card from time to time.
This isn’t the first time I’ve tried i3; Previously, I’ve used it in WattOS Microwatt but didn’t stick with it very long due to my netbook’s painful performance.
This time around I started with my primary desktop’s testing drive a 10 year old 5400RPM laptop hard drive reclaimed from a broken down MacBookPro that I use for distro hopping.
However, i3 combined Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and on my hardware makes this an a responsive experience. now a couple weeks in I still have no plans to remove it.
