If I remember correctly, the mentioned blog post was one of the convincing
arguments for me to try out dwm. I find it quite convincing to use tags as tags,
did it from the beginning and never had a problem with this approach. I tried
the tags as workspaces workflow in different window managers previously, but I
felt a little encumbered with it. I also encourage everyone who hasn't to try
out the tags as tags approach as mentioned in the blog post.
