> Because the world would have been a *better* place without fvwm, gwm, KWin, compiz, XMonad, Awesome and dwm
as painful as it is for me, as an Awesome user, to claim: yes, it would probably be a much better place.
copy/paste would _work_. there would be some logic and theme in the window-management keyboard shortcuts. applications with long-standing window-management brokenness (try using OpenOffice under Awesome, for instance, or pretty much any Java GUI program) would be unthinkable. I would not have to suffer video tearing on my allegedly well-supported Intel graphics chip, because everyone's environment would be similar enough for this buggy behavior to be universally irritating (providing sufficient motivation for the developers of whatever responsible part to bloody well fix it already). stuff that actually matters would work better.
