I have found a new window manager, and it brings me joy. Its name is
OpenBox. I had been a
long time BlackBox
user, but always kinda wanted to get rid of the slit. OpenBox has no
slit. I had tried fluxbox, but it just didn't appeal to me, you know?
Probably the configuration in Debian was more pain than I was willing to
deal with at the time.
Anyway, I have finally figured out how to use virtual desktops, or at
least in a useful way. Most of my fiddling around with linux has been
on laptops (installed on 3 different ones to date) and I therefore never
had a scroll button. Well, at work it was decided to take the laptop
mentioned below and use it as a floater for the entire office (oh, the
humanity!) and buy me a desktop instead.
