i3 Window Manager

Hi guys,

I recently installed i3wm, to try it out. It is a tiling window manager and fast, and although it looks minimalist, it is VERY configurable, with enough tweaking to keep a hacker happy for weeks!

I just wondered if anyone else had tried i3, and if so, what your experience had been ?

FYI,the machine it is on is a 12-year old Toshiba laptop, with 2Gb RAM, and a 80Gb HD, running Q4OS-2.7, as per screenshot.

As a matter of curiosity, how did you install it?
It is not on the list of DE that Q4OS profiler permits to install...
Just for fun (after making a snapshot in VirtualBox) I tried a sudo apt install i3wm, but that command doesn't work.

P.S. With your identifier (Pippin) and the apple image you use, I guess you are an apple lover, grower maybe? cider maker? (I am cider maker...)
