For simply customizing your desktop, this is very distro and WM/DE dependent but a lot easier to google or just play with your DE's settings. To avoid overly long answers and more specific help, please say what distro and WM/DE is default. Have fun.

Well I'm using very humble desktop managers (fluxbox and and ratpoison) with Slackware so what I'm trying to do is just simple X tweaks, nothing that would involve third party software or WM dependent modifications.

I'll play around with my virtual machines to see if this make a bit more sense, thanks for the help !

After reading up on it I'm scratching my head as to it's reason for being. Outside of being written in GO there seems nothing unique about it really. KDE and most other DEs can do "per monitor" stacking or tiling through use of the virtual desktops or workspaces so there's no real gain there AFAIK.

Going to install Arch soon, is EXT4 the best to use on an SSD? Also adding the "discard" to fstab is needed correct?

Edit: Also what's the best UEFI bootloader, my windows partion is already UEFI so i'm going with that?

As far as I'm aware, that kind of functionality isn't available in lightweight WM's aside from Xmonad, Awesome, and probably a few other obscure ones. It also seems to be way more customizable with shortcuts and scripts than Openbox. I'm going to try it out later, so I'll report back. The reason I'm interested in it is for the workspaces per monitor while still being similar to Openbox. I'm not a fan automatic tiling, though there might be a few cases in which I might want it, otherwise I'd just use Xmonad or Awesome.

Discard is a bad idea. Use Fstrim instead.

Here's the best collection of info I could put together:

As for UEFI I don't know.

@Cpt.TeacupLet us know how it goes. Maybe even a shot in Show your Linux?

I've been using Gummiboot, it's really basic and easy to set up, but I don't know if you can dual boot with it.

To be honest. I'd probably give it a try just because it's written in Go.

I quite like the idea of running a WM I can quickly and easily hack. smile.gif

Can't you technically do that with openbox since it's just an xml file to config it? Or are you talking deeper hacking like in the code itself?

Apparently Wingo doesn't have window resistance like Openbox, so that makes it worthless to me. Maybe I'll try Openbox-Multihead later.
