It took me a few minutes to "get it" and now I wonder why I didn't do this earlier -- I remember reading about ratpoison years ago and wondering "what's the point?" The point is to maximise your use of the screen and minimise the use of your mouse, and tiling works great both on tiny screens like my tablet and large screens like my desktop.
Right. This was known to Microsoft's developers thirty years ago. Unfortunately most people were unable to understand that back then and they can not understand that now. That's why tiling WMs are tiny niche and why developers don't bother to test their applications with them which it turn makes them much less useful.
