a couple of days ago we talked about the role that Ubuntu is desempeñanado Google, where this distribution and its variant Goobuntu seem to be very popular with employees of the company. One of the fun facts, moreover, was the fact that some developers make use window manager xmonad instead of KDE or GNOME, which are the classical approaches.
As often happens in MuyLinux, although we try to cover every possible variety of the Open Source world is so broad that escape us some of them , and in fact if you ever personally tried xmonad , I did not write anything about it. So this may be a good opportunity for those who do not know.
xmonad is, as its official website, a window manager “tiling” is written in Haskell and is primarily responsible for all windows you work at all times be displayed on the desktop in a space perfectly aligned.
It is a lightweight window manager , stable, extensible (there is a library with various supplements) and a devoted community that is present in the IRC channel and mailing list devoted to xmonad, and his own conception of alienated display multiple windows (or rather, “tiled) is a very useful alternative for developers , which often have several windows open at once and need access to all them to confront or to drag data elements to each other.
xmonad package is available in several distributions, although it seems odd given such little problem with Unity on Ubuntu, but this user has published a guide to install, we have not tested, that can serve you for help if you are in that case. The reason: xmonad aimed to be used with GNOME 2 , and both Ubuntu like most distros already have switched to GNOME 3.
Tombuntu this old article you can find some tips on the use of this window manager, which is certainly an interesting alternative if you like the best of the console and do not need so many “special effects”. Of course, you have a lot of information about xmonad in the official website, where there are specific sections of documentation and screenshots and videos on a window manager that will leave your desk “tiled to the ceiling” , as we say in Spain.
