I fully agree with you, Markus.
Up until a few months ago, before I felt comfortable with config-files,
I thought about switching back to Xfce again, because it offers a nice
variety of GUI-config-programs (And that just appears to be better when
you're a N00B).
However, I already had gotten used to the workflow in a tiling
manager. Having to use the mouse to scale the windows and rely on those
few workspaces just showed me how much better it is to be able to
assign tags to specific windows. This flexibility is just impossible in
normal wm's, just for the reason, because tiling isn't the way to go
for beginners.
That's why I don't understand why some people want to bring this
lacking concept of workspaces back to dwm.
