i3 Windows Manager

Hi guys,

 

I cam across this i3 and after testing it in my VM for a few hours, I am already in love with it and I want to go live with it in my main computer. I am not a pro Linux user, I've started using it few months ago and as everyone else, I've started with Ubuntu but this time I wanted to clean install my computers with Debian with i3 as my windows manager, do you recommend me to do so, or if there are any other light windows manager, I'd appreciate your inputs guys. Thanks!

 

Edit: Is there another windows manager called Alfa or Alpha? I goolged it but didn't find anything yet

There's a ton of X window managers - see for example the list on Wikipedia, or xwinman.org.

 

I haven't heard of a WM called 'alpha'. However another tiling WM in the style of i3 is awesome. (Yes, that really is its name.) Maybe that's what you were looking for?

Thank you guys. 

 

I am installing Awesome WM now and I'll test a bit.

Awesome seemed to take me a bit longer to get comfortable with than i3 but I do think it's better on the whole.
