It's a bit more straight forward than Awesome. Doesn't come with all the widgets and whatnot. Written in plain C++ and uses a common config.h file for all the configuration. But there are a ton of available patches for it to enable XFT/Pango support and well ton's of options.
I can't live without it though, swapped to it (full time) when the Gnome 3 bandwagon rolled around and being a huge Gnome 2 fan I could never get used to gnome 3. Have tried going back to XFCE, E17, KDE and others but I just can't do it. It feels wrong for some reason, and I always end up running home to dwm.
Have been using i3, ratpoison, scrotwm since they were made but never really had the desire ( or motivation? ) to go full on tiling wm until gnome 3 hit. I guess it just kind of forced me to love them, and I wouldn't go back even if I wanted to now. I pretty much just use DWM these days, even though I've been working on my own with a bit of inspiration from DWM and some from awesome, need more time and less headaches for that though, lol.
Tiling / Cli is the way to go. Makes life so easy. And it's almost funny to see floating wm/de's try to replicate a tiling mode but it just looks funny to me.
And so that this doesn't go too far off topic; my wallpaper
I just fixed it last night ( first screen shows the original version I had found, I used the pattern and redid the text in a bit more proper resolution )
