I got fed up with gnome and went looking for a no-desktop solution and a more
lightweight window manager. I stumbled across DWM and so far I am very happy
with it after about three weeks of use. The first couple of times I felt a bit
'naked' without the desktop and window decorations I was used to but one adapts
surprisingly fast to the lack of eye-candy.

Working with simple xterms and the terminus or fixed fonts in tiled mode is much
nicer for long editing or coding sessions where continued readability is

I'm also very happy with the way the top-bar developed over the last week, the
distinction between the various sections through colours alone is visually very
pleasing and easy on the eyes (this was definitely not the case with the extra
rectangles in version 1.0).

Great job Anselm!
