[ pretty off topic ]

Three days off-line and now ... *eek* ... 75 new messages.

It was interesting to read all those opinions and comments. I think it
was even fun, because I'm not directly affected ... not anymore. I
already found what I was looking for, more than a year ago. dwm then
was already good enough (with some personal modifications).

Nonetheless, reading this list is great inspiration and motivation for
staying on the suckless track.

Now to say some words about the actual topic:

Important is IMO to define a clear goal and to follow a straight path
to this goal. This is not only for the competition with other WMs but
also for keeping the software clear.

My personal opinion is that dwm should try to stay small and accept to
lose users to the ``fancy'' tiling WMs if this increases the internal
clarity and integrity of dwm and the path of its development.

But anyway, I don't care much anymore as I stopped with dwm 3.4. So,
you may not care about my opinion -- I don't mind.

Further more, I want to say, that there are more important things to
focus on, instead of trying to improve (or dis-improve) dwm. `st' is
the best example, of course.

Wish you all a good sleep (if you're from Europe) or a good morning
or a nice evening (if you're from somewhere else).
