I’ve used bspwm for a few years but got tired of all the “behind the scenes” tinkering to get a functioning wm and wanted something a bit simpler. So I just switched to i3 and am very happy so far!
I pipe conky into the i3bar since I’m used to it and actually used it as a “bar” in bspwm before! Took a while to get used to the i3bar JSON formatting, but at least I know JSON a lot better now! It’s also really nice to have an inbuilt tray instead of having to use a standalone program!
Since I’m used to the tiling setup of bspwm it feels awkward using i3, feels like i3 is lacking compared to bspwm. But hopefully I’ll adapt soon enough!
PS. I never really use floating windows, I just use it for the screenshot goodness
PS2. I f***ing LOVE VOID! Switched from Arch in January and now use it as my main laptop dist!
