Window Managers and Desktop Workflow

I've been playing around with a few tiling window manager options in the last few months to help my workflow on my development laptop. Out of the few I tried, I've gravitated back to the simplicity of configuration in the AwesomeWM. I'm still not convinced I have the most efficient use of workspaces and tiling set up just yet, but I'm getting there. With the baby happily toddling around taking up a majority of my home time these days (has it been that long? Jeebus...) I don't spend nearly as much time hacking on any projects as I used to, but i guess that's the beauty of being able to hop into a config file and poke around when I have a few minutes here and there.

My first iteration was a sort of Deus Ex inspired gold on black thing, but leaning toward readability of very small fonts. It worked out OK, and I may utilize aspects in the future, especially my Conky config.

I'm currently using a TRON inspired blue on black layout, with the gold conky config from earlier. It's working out well so far if I do say so myself. Vim is still just the Mustang theme from deviantArt.

Having 4 seperate workspace configurations available to switch between with a simple two key shortcut to switch to any of them is great. I can use nothing but the command line 99% of the time to access anything I ever need, and almost never touch my trackpad these days. It's quite lovely.

    Windows manager is the windows built-in app, which like to manage all the workflow of your system. Sometimes, few apps stops working gradually, so we can close them apps directly by going inside the task manager of our windows pane.
