Ubuntu Minimal + Xmonad
|12-Nov-2012||Posted by Sonia Hamilton under Haskell, Xmonad|
I’m tired of Ubuntu’s latest desktop
mess offering (Unity). I’ve been trying lots of DE’s (Desktop Environments) and WM’s (Window Managers), and I’ve finally settled on one I luuuuurv – Xmonad.
On my next laptop build I was thinking of moving to Debian Netinst, but I like the Ubuntu ppa system. So my next laptop install will be Ubuntu Minimal + Xmonad; will also me a good motivation for learning Haskell.
I’d looked Cinnamon and Gnome3 (more of the same), KDE (bleh – still looks like Windows 98), Fluxbox and XFCE. Then this great article about Joey Hess (original writer of the db_* debhelper tools) pointed me to Xmonad.
