Comparison of tiling window managers


This page has long existed (formerly in section 42) and despite being possibly only privately useful, has attracted many of the few of the website’s visitors. The only sensible conclusion from my point of view seems to be that there are too few good resources on tiling window managers.

In any case, as of now, I cannot provide as detailed an overview as I would like to or as would seem to be needed. Below, you will find a slightly cleaned-up version of the original page which as of now has to retain a bullet-point style.
