yep! it's kind of a hilarious piece of software, honestly. my suggestion
of it was mostly a joke, and i would certainly be laughing at it along
with everybody else, but unfortunately it fits me like a glove and i
find using it to be an absolute joy. however, if it doesn't fit your
workflow, it doesn't fit your workflow.
i wasn't really expecting a backlash, maybe just a chuckle or two.
dwm has both idiosyncrasies and a learning curve, but so too do most
"expert" pieces of software. vim and emacs are the canonical examples,
but i think that much "professional" software fits this bill, especially
software aimed at creative people. photoshop? blender, 3ds max? how
about logic, REAPER, ableton live, or any number of other programs in
for the record, i use renoise in dwm (in a floating workspace) and it's
fine. dwm isn't all tiling all the time if you don't want it to be.
