Ubuntu Minimal + Xmonad

11 Nov 2012

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.
